SALTWORKS OPERA VOICE COMPETITION
is scheduled for October 19th, 2019 in Cape Charles, VA 23310. This event is FREE and OPEN to the public! Competitors are chosen using a 'blind audition process' and our committee receives no information that would allow them to identify a singer. We make selections based on audio selections alone.
MS. ROBYNNE REDMON, MEZZO SOPRANO
American mezzo-soprano Robynne Redmon has firmly established herself as one of the finest leading ladies of this generation, having the unusual distinction of success in Bel Canto, French Grand Opera and the Italian Dramatic Repertoire.
Ms. Redmon has been hailed the world over for her "glorious singing, intense acting, excellent phrasing, ardent tone, splendid shading, solid coloratura and excellent artistic sense". (Das Opernglas) She has graced the world's greatest stages including The Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Staatsoper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsopera, Opéra de Marseilles, Teatro Regio di Torino, Teatro Municipal de Santiago, Opéra Montréal, Santa Fe Opera, Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, New York City Opera, Atlanta Opera, Boston Lyric Opera and Minnesota Opera. Ms. Redmon has not only made her indelible mark in standard repertoire, but she has also been an ardent champion of new works as well, creating such roles as the eponymous role of Bright Sheng's opera, Madame Mao.
Ms. Redmon is also an assistant vocal professor at University of Miami Frost School of Music and the Director of the Frost School of Music at Salzburg.
