Considered to be one of the most interesting Romanian singers of her generation, Rodica Vica’s dramatic coloratura voice is being highly appreciated among the borders of her country as well as abroad. A versatile artist, Rodica Vica is at her ease in bravery baroque and belcanto repertoire.
At only 24 she took over the title role in Mozart’s Queen of the Night at the Bucharest National Opera. She made regular appearances on this stage in Rita (G. Donizetti), Alcina (G. Fr. Haendel), La Cenerentola (G. Rossini), L’Elisir d’Amore (G. Donizetti). For the last two seasons she was invited to sing Donna Anna in a new production of Don Giovanni.
Adding new roles to her repertoire, Rodica Vica performed in various Romanian opera houses and concert venues. At the Iassy National Opera she sang in the rarely performed Rameau’s opera Les Indes Galantes, directed by the renowned Andrei Serban.
In 2015 Rodica Vica joined Ottavio Dantone and his prestigious ensemble Academia Bizantina in the opening concert of the Varazdin International Baroque Festival in Croatia with a Vivaldi programme. The same year, her baroque arias recital at Teatro La Fenice was highly acclaimed in Venice. In Austria, she was invited to sing Donna Anna at Klassik Festival Schloss Kirchstetten.
Last engagements include a George Enescu song recital as part of the Oedipe Month in London series of events to include also artists and creative crew of the “Oedipe” new production at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden. In July, Rodica Vica came back to Klassik Festival Schloss Kirchstetten in Austria to sing Norina in “Don Pasquale” and in autumm the soprano performed many baroque concerts with The Romanian Youth Orchestra.
