Verismo Communications announces the launch of a new website for dramatic soprano Heidi Melton, who has been hailed as “the Wagnerian voice we have been waiting for since Flagstad and Nilsson” (La Presse), with a voice that is “big, gleaming and tonally resplendent” (San Francisco Chronicle).
In the 2017/18 season, Melton makes a role debut as Brünnhilde in a new production of Götterdämmerung at Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe followed by performances of the complete Ring Cycle later in the spring. Ms. Melton also returns to the New York Philharmonic as Sieglinde in Act 1 of Die Walküre and with the Dallas Symphony as Brünnhilde in a complete concert performance of Die Walküre, both conducted by Jaap van Zweden. She sings Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 as the Second Soprano with Tonkünstler Orchester and Andres Orozco-Estrada in Vienna. In New York City, she sings a recital for the George London Foundation at the Morgan Library.
