Bio

Dramatic Coloratura soprano Natalia Dopwell gained rave reviews for her recent portrayals of Rosalinde Die Fledermaus at Queens Hall (Port of Spain) in May 2014, and the "Queen of the Night" in the sold out Little Carib Theatre performances of Mozart's The Magic Flute in March 2013 of which Simon Lee (Guardian) called her "astonishing, mesmerizing and ultimately humbling, suggesting that at any second the singer may soar off into the stratosphere". Over the years she has gained a reputation for her vivacious portrayals of roles such as Rita (Rita) with Martina Arroyo’s Prelude to Performance Program, and Eurilla (Il Pastor Fido) with Manhattan School of Music for which Opera Magazine noted that “The most advanced were the sopranos;... live wire presence Natalia Dopwell (Eurilla) could wield her diamantine high soprano as Serse’s Atalanta or Alcina’s Morgana.” Other operatic roles include Dido (Dido & Aeneas), Alice Ford (Falstaff), Micaela (Carmen), Madame Herz (The Impresario) and Fire, Princess & Nightingale (L'enfant et les Sortileges). Upcoming performances include Euridice (Orpheus in the Underworld) at the Little Carib (October 2014) and Female Jab Molassie (Jab Molassie) in the upcoming debut performance of this new work by Dominique LeGendre (November 2014). Natalia was awarded second prize at the 2012 Competition and Festival of Lyrical Song (Peru) and still holds the distinction of being the youngest person to ever win the May Johnstone Trophy for Most Outstanding Performer of the Trinidad Music Festival in 2004. She received her Bachelor’s degree in 2011 in vocal performance from Manhattan School of Music and is currently the Creative Director of the Classical Music Development Foundation of T&T (www.CMDFTT.org).
