A 2011 Metropolitan Opera National Council Grand Finalist, Ms. Breiwick has performed regularly with the Zürich Opera in more than ten roles, including most recently as Dorothy in the world premiere of Pierangelo Valtinoni’s "Der Zauberer von Oz" (The Wizard of Oz). Later this season, Ms. Breiwick appears as Rosasharn in the premiere of a new version of Ricky Ian Gordon’s "The Grapes of Wrath" at Opera Theatre of Saint Louis.
Opera Omaha Engagement Programs Manager Dimitri Kontos sits down with the soprano to chat about her musical beginnings and discuss her current and upcoming roles.
Praised for her “sweet sound and floating high notes” (The New York Times), Seattle-born soprano Deanna Breiwick takes the stage with pianist Sean Kelly in an evening of songs spanning the centuries, from pyrotechnic concert arias by Mozart to nostalgic love ballads by Kurt Weill, Arthur Schwartz and Peggy Lee.
This event was in collaboration with the Orchestra Omaha.
