Romina Boscolo is no stranger to Verdi's Dramatic Contralto roles, having recently performed the role of Mrs. Quickly alongside the great Ambrogio Maestri in the Theatro Municipal di San Paolo's acclaimed production of Falstaff. One reviewer said of her:
"But that voice! Warm, beautifully timbre, seamlessly across registers, with a deep, low contralto."
With her striking stage presence and arresting sound, Boscolo is certain to dominate the role of the witch Ulrica.
Further roles this season include: Mary in Hessisches Staatstheater's production of Der fliegende Holländer, which begins on 25th September; 1st Maid in Elektra at Teatro Comunale di Bologna; Romina Boscolo will also take on the roles of Preziosilla in La Forza del Destino, and Mrs. Quickly in Falstaff at the Hessisches Staatstheater in 2016.
