Italian soprano Giulia Semenzato came to international attention upon winning the International Competition Toti dal Monte in Treviso and the ‘Premio Farinelli’ at the Concorso Lirico Cittá di Bologna. She studied at the Benedetto Marcello Conservatory in Venice and specialised in baroque music at the Schola Cantorum in Basel, after completing a Law degree at the University of Udine.
The 2019/20 season sees Giulia’s role debut in Cavalli’s Ercole amante under Raphaël Pichon at the Opéra Comique performing as Cinzia/Venere/Bellezza, and a return to the role of Zerlina Don Giovanni at the Theater an der Wien with Giovanni Antonini. At Opéra de Lille she will interpret Nanetta Falstaff, and at the Drottningholms Slottsteater Stockholm she takes on Poppea Agrippina. In concert, she returns to the Mozarteum Foundation, Salzburg for a programme of Mozart during its annual Mozartwoche under Riccardo Minasi. Later she returns to the Theater an der Wien for Susanna Le nozze di Figaro and makes her highly anticipated Royal Opera House debut.
Giulia has continued to champion music from the baroque era and is an established recording artist. For Arcana, she has recorded Logroscino’s Stabat Mater, and for Accent, Handel’s Messiah under Václav Luks with the Collegium 1704 & Collegium Vocale 1704. Giulia’s debut recording was Cavalli’s Sospiri d’amore under Claudio Cavina for Glossa.
Giulia makes her Glyndebourne debut this summer as Almirena Rinaldo alongside Kristina Mkhitaryan and under the baton of Maxim Emelyanychev. For tickets and more information, please see the Glyndebourne website.
We are delighted to welcome Giulia to our roster for world management, where she will be represented by Fabiana Dalpiaz and Aifric Dennison.
