Bulgarian born Violina Anguelov (mezzo-soprano) returns to the title role in Bizet’s Carmen after her spectacular performance in 2011, celebrated by both critics and public alike.
The award winning singer (The Adcock Ingram Music Prize; The Erik Chisholm Prize) graduated with a Performer’s Diploma in Opera from UCT under Sarita Stern. In 2000, she made her European début as Dorabella in Così fan tutte in Hanover.
At home, Violina is well known to Cape Town Opera audiences who have enjoyed her in the roles of Suzuki in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly, Mrs. Patrick De Rocher in Jake Heggie’s opera Dead Man Walking, Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti by Bernstein, Octavian in Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier and most recently as Herodias in Salome. She has sung in oratorio and concerts under the direction of conductors such as Sir Richard Bonynge, Sir Donald Hunt, Barry Smith and Kamal Khan.
If you have not yet experienced the magic of opera, Carmen is the perfect place to start. With memorable tunes, a gripping story, a huge cast, and a compelling central character, Carmen is a guaranteed crowd pleaser.
