Arianna Zukerman Possessing a luminous voice with "the breadth of

dramatic inflection to make for a powerfully effective

performance"(Opera), soprano Arianna Zukerman is

equally in demand for opera and concert performances. 

The Washington Post observes "Arianna Zukerman

possesses a remarkable voice that combines the range,

warmth and facility of a Rossini mezzo with shimmering,

round high notes and exquisite pianissimos that would

make any soprano jealous."

Arianna Zukerman's 2009-10 season included

performances in Lisbon and Canada's National Arts

Centre, among many other engagements.  She also

sang with the Washington Chorus, the National Philharmonic, the Rochester

Philharmonic.  She performed works of Rossini and Bruckner at UC/Davis,

and works by Mozart at the Ravinia Festival.  And she performed in recital

with pianist Navah Perlman for El Paso Pro Musica.


Previous highlights include a return to the Chateauville Foundation to reprise

the role of Female Chorus in The Rape of Lucretia under Lorin Maazel, with

performances at the conductor's estate in Virginia.  She sang Britten's War

Requiem in a return to the National Philharmonic; and Musetta in La bohème

with the Philadelphia Orchestra at the Mann Center in Philadelphia and at

the Bravo! Vail Valley Music Festival under Rossen Milanov.  Ms. Zukerman

recently made her Boston Symphony Orchestra debut under James Levine
