Tamara Wilson


Vocalists — Soprano

“Another soprano who won big ovations, and deservedly so, was [Tamara] Wilson, who proved her splendid Elettra in Conlon's "Idomeneo" here in 2012 was no fluke. Her Anna came on like a veritable force of nature, her huge, gleaming, dramatic soprano absolutely nailing both arias. Her Ottavio, the fine Albanian tenor Saimir Pirgu, had all he could do to match Wilson's lava-flow vocalism in their scenes…” —John von Rhein, Chicago Tribune, August 16, 2014 - Donna Anna in 'Don Giovanni' with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra at Ravinia

“Gulnara, an even bigger soprano role that Tamara Wilson carried off with a large, pointed, slightly metallic sound…Wilson and [Michael] Fabiano really showed their stuff in a duet that involved a lot of posturing (“I will free you from prison!” “I scorn your help!”) as a springboard to some enthralling Verdian fireworks.” —Anne Midgette, Washington Post, March 10, 2014 - Gulnara in 'Il Corsaro' with Washington National Opera

“To be sure, parts of Il Trovatore were stellar and first and foremost on this list would be Tamara Wilson as the lovelorn Leonora. What's a girl to do when she's wooed by a count but loves a troubadour? Trapped in a love triangle and in the midst of a war, Wilson soars as if she might with only her voice tear open the prison doors to release her lover. Later, whispering to Manrico as she dies, a hush fell over the hall and we all strained in our seats to get closer.” —Joseph Campana, CultureMap, April 27, 2013 - Leonora in 'Il trovatore' at Houston Grand Opera
