- Eric Myers, OPERA NEWS
Soprano Joanna Mongiardo, recognized for her effortless coloratura and spellbinding charisma on stage, is in high demand for both operatic and symphonic repertoire in the US and abroad. Recent engagements include her return to New York City Opera as La Prima Elfe in Respighi’s La campagna sommersa, a return to Boston Midsummer Opera as Adina in L’elisir d’amore, her NY solo recital debut at Opera America, and soloing in Handel’s Messiah at David Geffen Hall with the National Chorale. Ms. Mongiardo also
recently performed with Novus NY in a solo recital of music by Bernstein, Mahler and Foss; and later rejoined them to sing Mahler’s 4th Symphony. In the fall of 2019, Ms. Mongiardo rejoined New York City Opera for their 75th Anniversary Concert and Teatro Grattacielo for Respighi’s rarely performed La bella addormentata nel bosco. In December 2021, she again joined the National Chorale as the soprano soloist in Messiah and made her debut with the Greater Bridgeport Symphony in No Place Like Home for the Holidays.
