Nadine Sierra, soprano

Opera News called her the next ‘singer to watch’; The New York Times praised her ‘commanding stage presence’; The Palm Beach Arts Paper predicts a sizable career for her in the world’s opera houses. Clearly, Nadine Sierra has made an impression in the arts and theater scene. The young soprano won the 2007 Marilyn Horne Foundation Vocal Competition, the 2009 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and, in 2010, she won first prizes at the George London Competition, Gerda Lissner International Vocal Competition, and Loren Zachary Competition. She graduated with her Bachelor’s degree from the Mannes College for Music in May 2010, and shortly thereafter was accepted into a two-year residency as an Adler Fellow (young artist) with the San Francisco Opera. The Leonore Annenberg Fellowship allowed Nadine the opportunity to participate as an Adler Fellow comfortably, to continue her training and coaching, and to prepare for her débuts at the Seattle Opera, Florida Grand Opera, and Italy’s Teatro di San Carlo.  In 2013, she placed first at the Neue Stimmen, Montserrat Caballé, and Veronica Dunne International Singing Competitions.  In March 2017, she made her role debute at The Metropolitan Opera in Idemeneo, a performance dubbed by the New York Times as “a high point of the season.” She will appear in late spring as Lucia in Donizetti’s Lucia Di Lammermoor at Teatro La Fenice in Vence, Italy, and as Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto at Opéra National de Paris.
