About Anna Tonna
“A born star who effectively stole the show” is how the press describes mezzo-soprano ANNA TONNA. Well known for her commitment to the music of Spain and Latin America, her performances have been depicted as “...full of charm and magnetism with her dark, compact lyric mezzo-soprano, ideally suited for the flamenco-like vocal flourishes of Spanish music”. In the role of Ernestina in the North American premiere of Gioachino Rossini's L'equivoco stravagante, she was described as "a mezzo heroine who knows how to sing Rossini" by the Rossini Gessellschaft and as "showing off her warm, secure mezzo-soprano to maximum advantage" by the New York Magazine. The combination of a highly developed coloratura with a full, balanced, flexible lower register have guaranteed her acclaim as a lyric mezzo, both in familiar roles of Rosina, Carmen, Dorabella, as well as in the more rare repertoire by Paisiello, Vivaldi, Mascagni, Zandonai and Giordano. She has sung leading roles with Teatro Grattacielo in Lincoln Center, New Jersey State Opera, Opera Illinois State Opera of Brno (Czeck Republic), Opera de Santo Domingo among others. As a solo recitalist she has presented at The Casals Festival of Puerto Rico, Festival Iberoamericano de las Artes in Puerto Rico, Música de Cámara of New York, Festival de Segovia (Spain) among many others. Her recital “Songs of post Civil War Spain” at the Fundación Juan March of Madrid was broadcast live by Radio Television Española and hailed as “a tour de force” by the Spanish newspaper ABC. She recently bowed under the baton of Mstra. Lucy Arner as Laura Adorno in Ponchielli's La Gioconda with New Jersey Association of Verismo Opera, and her performance was singled out by British Opera Magazine as "elegant in deportment, line and authentic proto-veristic style". She can be heard in her new commercial disc release España alla Rossini with iTinerant Classics. www.annatonna.com
