Cuban-American soprano, Jennifer Zamorano, recently performed the role of La Contessa Almaviva at the Center for Jewish History in NYC and critics comment "She shone in both arias --"Porgi amor" and "Dove sono", eliciting compassion in the midst of all that hilarity. Her instrument has a lovely vibrato and opens up beautifully in the upper register."
Previously she performed in the St. Hugh-Steinway Concert Series performing scenes from Lucia di Lammermoor, La Traviata and La Sonnambula. Critics commented that her performance "was brilliant, and bordering on perfection. Zamorano that night could be compared with some of the biggest divas of the moment".
In 2016, she received an Encouragement Award from the Met Council Auditions and received her Master’s Degree in Vocal Performance from the University of Miami. She received her Bachelor’s Degree in Vocal Performance from Florida International University in 2008.
In recent years, she has performed with Opera Companies such as the Florida Grand Opera, Miami Music Festival, Des Moines Metro Opera, Opera New Jersey, Vero Beach Opera, Gold Coast Opera, Amici del'Arte, Pro Arte Grateli, Hispanic Lyric Theatre and the Miami Lyric Opera.
Ms. Zamorano's most distinctive roles include:
Lucia in Lucia di Lammermoor, Amina in La Sonnambula, Contessa Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Violetta in La Traviata, Margarita Xirgu in Ainadamar, Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia, among others.
Ms. Zamorano currently resides in Washington, DC.
