Armenian soprano Mané Galoyan, the 2021 Operalia Second Prize, Zarzuela Prize and the Rolex Audience Prize winner, whom the Houston Press exclaimed was “..radiant as dewy Gilda in her first throes of love, heavenly as a daughter disgraced, and positively stoic as martyr…she possesses a crystalline voice that cuts through any orchestral texture. She waltzed through Verdi's dramatic coloratura without effort. She can float incandescent pianissimos then belt with Verdian thunder.”
In the current season Ms. Galoyan will sing Suor Angelica and Lauretta in a new production of Il Trittico with Donald Runnicles at the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte with the Wiener Staatsoper, Donna Anna in Don Giovanni with the Canadian Opera Company, Violetta in La traviata with Santa Fe Opera and Deutsche Oper Berlin, Suor Angelica with the Bayerische Staatsoper and the title role in The Cunning Little Vixen with Detroit Opera. In concert, she will sing Rachmaninoff’s The Bells with Swedish Radio Orchestra, and a holiday concert with the Basel Symphony Orchestra.
As an Ensemble member with the Deutsche Oper Berlin in 2021-2022, Ms. Galoyan performed Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Violetta in La Traviata, and Corinna in Il viaggio a Reims, among other roles. As a guest, she made her debut with Dutch National Opera as Violetta, and performed the title role in Luisa Miller with the Glyndebourne Festival. She also stepped in for an ailing colleague to sing Adina for her debut with Paris Opéra in October, 2021, and sang Walter in La Wally with the Munich Radio Orchestra. In the 2020-2021 season, she debuted with Zürich Opernhaus as Adina in L’elisir d’amore and performed Garsenda in Francesca da Rimini with Deutsche Oper Berlin.
