"The mezzo Eve Gigliotti, her voice powerful and agile, was movingly torn between her mission and her desires."
-New York Times
Known for her passionate portrayals of complex characters, Mezzo-soprano Eve Gigliotti has a voice that has been described as “powerful and agile” (New York Times), and is an “incisive actress” (Opera News). Eve has won critical acclaim for her work in contemporary opera, including her portrayal as Ruth in the world premiere of Dark Sisters (Muhly/Karam), and Bess in the world premiere of Breaking the Waves (Mazzoli/Vavrek). A performing artist and innovator, Eve is involved as creative producer and developed the original concept for ‘Untitled: Inspired by Film Stills’, an immersive chamber opera inspired by the iconic series of Cindy Sherman; as well as the Creative and Executive Producer, in partnership with Cath Brittan, of ‘No One Is Forgotten: A Radio Opera Experience’, adapted from the original play by Winter Miller.
For the COVID-19 impacted 2020-2021 season, her planned engagements include a return to the Metropolitan Opera, performing Gertrude in Romeo et Juliette, Annina in La traviata, Mother Superior in The Fiery Angel, and Mercedes in Carmen, while covering Mrs. DeRocher in Dead Man Walking, Amneris in Aida, and Brangäne in Tristan und Isolde (all cancelled due to the pandemic). She was also to make her Opera Maine debut as Mary in The Flying Dutchman. This fall she sang multiple roles in White Snake Projects’ technologically-immersive Alice in the Pandemic, and produced and performed in the first workshop of ‘No One Is Forgotten’, presented by HERE in their #stillHere online offerings.
