The New York Times has called Tamara Acosta’s soprano “solid…her singing clarion-toned and ardent.” Most recently, Ms. Acosta appeared as the soprano soloist in Verdi’s Messa di Requiem with the Arts at Grace concert series in Cortland, NY. Prior to that, Ms. Acosta appeared as the soprano soloist in Poulenc’s Gloria and Stabat Mater with the Ithaca Community Chorus having previously sung Verdi’s Requiem with them as well.
She has been seen as Desdemona with Opera Delaware and prior to that was on the roster at the Lyric Opera of Chicago covering Odabella in Verdi’s Attila and the title role in Puccini’s Tosca. Two performances of the Verdi Requiem commemorated the 100th anniversary of Verdi’s death with Sarasota Opera followed by a return to Nashville Opera as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, having previously appeared with the company as Marianne in Der Rosenkavalier. Later that year, she made her Santa Fe Opera debut as Manja in Countess Maritza while also covering the title role in Strauss’ Ariadne auf Naxos. A long time favorite at Sarasota Opera, Ms. Acosta appeared in numerous productions with the company including Fenena in Verdi’s Nabucco, Leonora in La Forza del Destino and Elvira in Ernani as well as the title character in Janacek’s Jenufa. Ms. Acosta appeared in the world premiere of Judith Weir’s The Vanishing Bridegroom with Opera Theatre of St. Louis and was also seen as Octavie in Massenet’s Cleopatre in Alice Tully Hall.
Upcoming is the Dvorak Stabat Mater in Xalapa, Mexico with the Xalapa Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Maestro Lanfranco Marcelletti and Vaughan William’s The Sea Symphony with the Ithaca Community Chorus.
