as Rosalina in Il Re with TEATRO GRATTICIELO
- Eric Myers, OPERA NEWS
Joanna Mongiardo has been lauded for her “smooth, plummy, seamlessly blended soprano and fluid coloratura,” (BachTrack) in operatic and orchestral performances worldwide. The soprano was recently recognized as “a triumph” by Opera News for her portrayal of Rosalina in Teatro Gratticielo’s Il Re at Lincoln Center, and The Boston Globe wrote about Boston Midsummer Opera’s L’elisir d’amore, "Joanna Mongiardo’s Adina delivered with style and luster."
In 2022, Mongiardo celebrated the release of her first solo album, Evermore on Crossover Records, recorded live at Opera America.
In recent seasons Mongiardo has brought the “energy and charm [of] her delicious Blonde" (Forum Opera Magazine) to more than thirty performances of Die Entführung aus dem Serail, including productions at Grande Théâtre de Genève, Opéra Nice Côte d’Azur, and Deutsche Oper am Rhein – the company with whom she began her professional career and has performed numerous leading roles including Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier, Oscar in Un ballo in maschera, Nannetta in Falstaff, and Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro.
