Julia Rutigliano [captivated] not only with her passionate interpretation [...] but also vocally, with the bright coloring, dramatic undertones, assuredness and power of her mezzo-soprano. Opernnetz (on Oktavian in Strauss‘ Rosenkavalier)
The German-Italian mezzo-soprano Julia Rutigliano captivates audiences with her powerful voice and passionate performances on opera and concert stages the world over. The work of Wagner is a central feature of her repertoire and comprises many of her roles. During her studies in Munich at the Hochschule für Musik und Theater and the Bayerischen Theaterakademie, from which she graduated with honours in 2005, she sang the Fox in in Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen, Helena in Offenbach’s Die schöne Helena, Beatrice in Berlioz’s Beatrice et Bénédict and Donna Elvira in Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
