Dolora Zajick

Dolora Zajick

Vocalists — Mezzo-Soprano

"For her performance as Santuzza on Sunday was the best singing that I have heard, not only in Washington but anywhere, in a long, long time...The basic equation of the afternoon was: Zajick onstage equals riveting opera; opera minus Zajick equals something considerably less riveting." —Washington Post - Santuzza in 'Cavalleria rusticana', Washington National Opera debut

“As the haunted gypsy Azucena, mezzo-soprano Dolora Zajick remains a vocal phenomenon of the first order…for sheer visceral thrills in this music she's hard to beat.” —San Francisco Chronicle - Azucena in 'Il trovatore', Metropolitan Opera

"Zajick's mezzo really is a proverbial iron fist in a velvet glove, her delicately-spun legato in 'Ai nostri monti' all the more impressive after her hair-raising Act III curse and the thunderous chest register she employed in 'Mal reggendo'. Her characterization of the bedeviled gypsy was a pointed reminder of Zajick’s largely unchallenged position as THE Verdi mezzo of the day." —Opera News - Azucena in 'Il trovatore', Lyric Opera of Chicago


Hailed as a “force of nature” (Variety), Dolora Zajick has been internationally acclaimed as that rare voice type, a true dramatic Verdi mezzo-soprano, typified by the composer's most famous and difficult mezzo-soprano roles. Dolora is known for her interpretations of Azucena in Il Trovatore, Amneris in Aida, and Eboli in Don Carlo on the world’s greatest stages, including the Metropolitan Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Houston Grand Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro Real in Madrid, the Liceu in Barcelona, Vienna Staatsoper . . .
