Emily D’Angelo – soprano
Sophia Munoz – piano
At its concerts in the New Town Hall, the Association of Friends of Musical Talents presents the winners of prestigious international competitions and the best Czech and international singers of the young generation. This time we will present the amazing Canadian-Italian mezzo-soprano Emily D’Angelo, who was briefly and concisely described by Le Devoir: “Just one word – Emily D'Angelo is a phenomenon.” Phenomenon indeed, Emily is especially sought after as a Mozart singer. With Mozart, she also realized several major debuts. In December 2018, she debuted in Metropolitan Opera as a second lady in Die Zauberflöte and in 2019 at the State Opera Berlin – as Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro. She debuted on 25th September 2020 at the Bavarian State Opera in Munich and as Dorabella (Così fan tutte), and on 23rd January 2021 in La Scala, Milan. She will return to Munich in July 2021 as Mozart’s Idamante (Idomeneo). But the Emily domain is not just Mozart! In December 2021 she returns to the Metropolitan Opera, this time as Le Prince Charmant in Massenet’s Cendrillon.
Pianist Sophia Munoz, a graduate of New Julliard School will accompany Emily at the recital. The varied program will include compositions of Clara Schumann, Aaron Copland and Alexander Zemlinsky.
