American mezzo-soprano TAMARA GURA has been hailed as a "stand-out" by the Financial Times, working her way into the "highest league of mezzo-sopranos" (Neues Deutschland). She is gaining international attention for her "velvet-toned mezzo" (Opera), her "dazzling coloratura" (Süddeutsche Zeitung), and her "deeply emotional singing" (Opernwelt). She is rapidly establishing herself as one of the most exciting mezzos of her generation- "a true stage animal" (Frankfurt Allgemeine Zeitung). Engagements have already taken the young singer to some of Europe's most prestigious opera houses in leading roles, including the Hamburg State Opera, English National Opera in London, the Semperoper in Dresden, Opernhaus Zürich, Gran Teatre Liceu Barcelona, Dutch National Opera, Spoleto Festival, CuvilliesTheater Munich, and the Teatro dell'Opera di Roma. Her expansive and versatile repertoire encompasses the leading baroque and bel canto roles, as well as French and German romantic roles, and cutting edge contemporary operas.
