Bio



FRANCESCA RUSSO ERMOLLI
Mezzo Soprano





Recently engaged in Willy Decker's evocative production of Katia Kabanova at San Carlo in Naples, she is among the three elected artists invited to participate in the "musical meeting" that M°Riccardo Muti wanted to offer to the detainees of the Minorile Penitentiary Institute of Nisida, last November, where she performed in the most famous opera ari-as of her repertoire. She recently personified Nina’s character in Nina ossia la Pazza per Amore by Paisiello at the Royal Palace of Caserta, Belvedere of San Leucio, accompanied by M° Vincenzo Caruso, getting a particular success of public and criticism for this debut, and confirming her as an excellent interpreter/actress in those roles where the singing alternates with acting in prose, as requested by the intense score of Paisiello. Formerly she was Dimitri in the Fedora di Giordano at the San Carlo di Napoli, with M° Ascher Fisch, where the role en travesti makes her peculiar vocal agility and youthful appearance, in a fresh and impassioned interpretation.
She has been invited in Bruxelles, on behalf of Martin Schultz, President of the European Parliament to perform a Solo Gala Recital at the opening of the exibition of the Italians Works of Art from the European Parliament's art collection, to celebrate the commencement of the Italian Presidency of the Council of the European Union.

Winner of the ASLICO for the “Monteverdi-Project” Competition, she acquired particularly strong links with Baroque Music, singing Provenzale, Rinaldo da Capua, Latilla, Leo, Vinci, Monteverdi, Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Pergolesi, Bononcini and Jommelli.
Winner of the "7th City of Pistoia Competition" for the role of Rosina of Barbiere di Siviglia, interpreting it successfully in Pistoia, Napoli, Lucca, Grosseto. Alongside the presence on the scene, an intense concert activity, with programs ranging from Monteverdi to twentieth century music; He is one of the soloists of the last edition of Mozart's Requiem at the San Carlo in Naples, under the guidance of Hansjorg Albrecht

Always a support and a striking presence on stage, with a busy and intensive concert schedule, with programs ranging from Monteverdi to the music of the twentieth century.
