Il Trovatore, by Giuseppe Verdi, conducted by Carlo Montanaro: Role of Azucena



The central figure of the evening was, vocally and dramatically Nora Sourouzian, Frensh-Canadian with - Armenian roots, as Azucena. Also for her, it was a role debut. And she fully succeeded it. Everything was right – she managed to put a convincing, centred personality on stage. Vocally she managed this difficult role virtually without any problems – the technically secure conducted voice has an equal sound-colour without any register breaks from the chesty low notes until the top high notes. Nora Sourouzian received the biggest applause in the end, which was absolutely merited

Nora Sourouzian will be singing the third symphony of Mahler with Leonid Grin as conductor of the Orquesta Sinfónica de Chile, Santiago.
Nora Sourouzian is a velvet-voiced mezzo-soprano from Canada with an arresting stage personality.
Rupert Christiansen, The Telegraph
Hailed by Opera for her “warmly-rounded sound with ease and impact at the top” and “crystalline diction,” French-Canadian mezzo soprano Nora Sourourzian makes her debut with Bard Summerscape as Marfa in Dvorak’s Dmitrij, and returns Oper Graz in coming seasons for an exciting role debut as Azucena. Last season, she reprised one of her most frequently performed roles, Carmen, with Theater St. Gallen and Palm Beach Opera and returned to the title role of Anita in La Navarraise at the Bard Music Festival. Soon, she will be performing from Frank Martin, Die Weise von Liebe und Tod with L'orchestre de Chamber de Genève.
