Winner of the Vienna International New Years Competition 2018, Miss Di Giorgio has sung in December at the Gala Concert in the Konzertsaal der Wiener Sängerknaben accompanied by the Wiener Stadtorchester.

Considered one of her signature roles, Ms. Di Giorgio will perform in November 2019 the Verdi Requiem at the Bruckenerhaus Linz. Among the previous triumphant interpretations are the Concert series that took place in Mai 2018 which included the Philharmonie de Paris, the Versailles Festival, the La Seine Musicale Paris with the Orchestre National d’Ile-de-France under the baton of M° Enrique Mazzola. In 2017 she performed it in the Aachen Cathedral, in 2018 in Freiburg and in Calabria (It.). Her great success was highly celebrated as “a tragedienne, with a rich mezzo register capable of expressing wadded deep harmonic tones and even subterranean groans as well as high shimmering notes. Supported by the immense sound palette of the orchestra, she embraces the pulpit and embodies the nobility as well as the profound affliction of the text. Her broad experience in interpretation of the verdian operatic roles, shows throughout this dramatic piece in the beautifully guided lines.”

In 2018/2019 Miss Di Giorgio sang her second production of Verdi’s Macbeth (Theater Aachen and Stadtstheater Cottbus, Germany) in the role of Lady Macbeth. Opera Magazine describes her as “a mezzo with impressively secure top notes (including a high D flat) which makes for a sensuous and vibrant Lady Macbeth”. In the cavatina “Vieni t’affretta…” she places the large tone jumps with such vocal perfection, that no break between high and low notes is audible. Every note she sings is intense with feelings, the high notes are brilliant and clear in fortissimo and her toying in the low register, with her dusky voice, always pays off.”

In 2018 Ms. Di Giorgio was further to be heard in Theater Bonn in the role of La Zia Principessa and Zita in Puccini’s Trittico.

At the National Theater of Belgrade and at the Opera Craiova, her successful performances of Amneris in Verdi’s Aida were celebrated by the press. In July, Ms. Di Giorgio has furthermore embraced the dramatic repertoire with her debut as Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana by Mascagni (Cerreto Guidi, Tuscany). In Italy still in 2018, Ms. Di Giorgio has won the Taormina Mythos Festival Auditions and has sung the Mozart Requiem in Calabria, Italy.

Singing the title role in Carmen (Bizet), she has been depicted by Opernglas as “an absolutely authentic Carmen” and praised by Grenzecho Net for her “gripping depiction of all erotic Nuances, loose art of seduction with a full-bodied opulent voice, elegant lightness and beautiful legato singing.“ Among her greatest successes are, as described by Die Deutsche Bühne, “the magnificently sang role of Eboli (Don Carlo)”, as well as Ulrica in Ballo in Maschera, Federica in Luisa Miller, Venus in Tannhäuser, Adalgisa in Norma, Brangäne in Tristan und Isolde, der Komponist in Ariadne auf Naxos, La Principessa, Zita and Frugola in Il Trittico, the Hexe in Hänsel und Gretel, Jezibaba in Rusalka, Hata in The Bartered Bride, Dritte Dame in Zauberflöte, Marta and Panthalis in Mefistofele as well as Czipra in Der Zigeunerbaron. Her successful achievements also reached out into early music with a “characterized by a powerful but still agile voice” Polinesso in Handel’s Ariodante and Nutrice in Monteverdi’s Incoronazione di Poppea.

Amidst the concerts, Ms. Di Giorgio has sparkled in the 8. Symphony of Mahler, the 9. Symphony of Beethoven, Lieder aus Jiddischer folks Poesie by D.Shostakovich.

The opportunity to build her vast repertoire, received Ms. Di Giorgio at the Theater Aachen (G) where, until 2017,  she secured her position in the ensemble directly upon finishing her studies at the Music Conservatory in Mannheim 2012.

Ms. Di Giorgio’s appearances in prestigious Music Festivals include the Heidelberg Frühling Festival, Versailles Festival, Düsseldorf Musik Festival, Bucharest Gala in Romania, Baden Baden Festival, Open air festival Kurpark Classix Aachen, “Mermer i zvuci” Arandjelovac (Serbia).

Ms. Di Giorgio was awarded The Gold Medal Prize at the prestigious 2010 International Opera Competition “Hariclea Darclee” in Braila (Romania) with Nicolae Herlea as president of the jury, and the third prize in 2010 and the special Prize awarded by Joan Sutherland in 2007 at the International Competition “Amici della Musica”, Alcamo (Italy).

At the Mannheim University of Music and Performing Arts (2009-2012) instead she was the recipient of the Wilhelm Müller Foundation Scholarship.
