Bio

Julia Radosz is quickly establishing herself as one of opera’s favorite leading ladies. Her opulent voice and innate musicality paired with a commanding stage authority make her the perfect choice for the Verdian, Mozartian, and Bel Canto repertoires. She has been praised by Musical America as a “lovely lyric soprano” (George Loomis), impressing with her “warm tone and agile phrasing” (Austin XL). Her recent debut of La Traviata with Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra and Delaware Valley Opera met with much enthusiasm for her “astonishing performance, brilliant soprano and thrilling embellishments that were augmented by the most subtle and heart-rending acting” (Voche di Meche). The upcoming season will see Ms. Radosz with the Caramoor Festival, Northern Dutchess Symphony Orchestra, and a role debut of Musetta with Wichita Grand Opera. In the past season, Ms. Radosz reprised the role of Lauretta (Gianni Schicchi) and Gilda (Rigoletto) with North Shore Music Festival conducted by Anthony LaGruth, created the lead role of Olympia in an operatic world premiere of Haim Elisha’s A Certain Quiet with the Theater for the New City, performed in a gala featuring works of Verdi and Donizetti with Annapolis Opera, and sang scenes from Rigoletto and La Traviata with Gulfshore Opera in their inaugural season concert Viva Verdi, under the baton of Maestro Paul Nadler. Earlier this season, she was called upon last minute in Un ballo in maschera with Miami Lyric Opera, which she sang to great acclaim under the baton of Imre Pallo. . During the 2013-2014 season, Ms. Radosz appeared as Berenice in Rossini’s L’occasione fa il ladro with Little OPERA Theatre of NY, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi with Raylynmor Opera, and Lydia Larkspur in the NY Premiere of Kirke Mechem’s The Rivals with Bronx Opera, in which she was praised by The New York Times for her “properly dreamy, petulant Lydia” and Broadway World for her “strong, musically adept performance”. While in residency with Tri-Cities Opera, Ms. Radosz made many role debuts, including Gilda (Rigoletto), Fiordiligi (Cosí fan tutte), Adina (L’elisir d’amore), Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro), Antonia (Les Contes d’Hoffman), and received much praise for her “Spinning top . . . impressive chest register” and “pliable, rich soprano” (Broome Arts Mirror). Previous roles include Helena (A Midsummer Night’s Dream) and Magnolia Hawks (Showboat) with Opera Naples, Tormentilla in Ralph Vaughn Williams’ The Poisoned Kiss with Bronx Opera, Rose-Marie with Light Opera of New York, and Donna Anna (Don Giovanni) with Cape Cod Opera. With The Butler Opera Center, Ms. Radosz has sung Susannah, the Governess in Turn of the Screw, Lady Madeline in the American premiere of Debussy’s opera La Chute de la Maison Usher, and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), in Costa Rica, Mexico, and Austin, in which she was lauded for her “technically sound, rich performance” (The Austin Chronicle). She also performed several recitals themed on the artistry of Marcella Sembrich and Jenny Lind, at the Sembrich Museum and the Barnum Festival. Ms. Radosz has garnered numerous awards, including: Winner of the Jenny Lind Competition, Connecticut Concert Opera Competition, Marcella Kochanska Sembrich Vocal Competition, and the 5 Towns Music and Arts Foundation Competition, a Grant Winner from The CareerBridges Foundation, 2nd Place in the Kosciuszko Foundation’s Marcella Sembrich Vocal Competition, 2nd Place in the National Federation of Music Club’s Biennial Young Artist Awards, the Bel Canto Award at the Orpheus Competition, finalist in the Liederkranz Competition General Opera Division, and a guild encouragement recipient at the Palm Beach Opera Competition.
