WMCT Centennial Scholarship

Operalia: another first prize for Emily D’Angelo

“Emily D’Angelo, winner of the 2016 Met Auditions at the incredibly young age of 21, is currently a member of the Lindemann Young Artist Program there. Tonight, she virtually cleaned up by winning four prizes – First Prize, Birgit Nilsson Prize, Zarzuela Prize, and the Rolex Audience Prize.  For the finals, she sang “Dopo notte” from Handel’s Ariodante with stunning fioritura.  She also sang a brilliantly idiomatic zarzuela.  Fellow mezzo Rihab Chaieb was the Third Prize Winner, combining rich vocalism with alluring stage presence in “Mon coeur s’ouvre a ta voix” from Saint-Saens’ Samson et Dalila.
