“In the midst of a soaring career” (Chicago Tribune), 2015 was a landmark year for young American soprano Becca Conviser, taking home the top prize in 5 International Competitions. Based in the Czech Republic, she is currently a soloist at Divadlo J. K. Tyla v Plzni singing the title role of Madama Butterfly in Madama Butterfly, as well as the role of Cizí Knežna in their new production of Rusalka through 2018.
Described for her sound which “exudes joy, enthusiasm and warmth”, this technically sound soprano has a timber uniquely her own. Ms. Conviser’s diverse portfolio of over 25 roles, demonstrates this young soprano’s vocal strength, versatility and great potential for the dramatic Verdi and Wagner repertoire in the future. Her Carnegie Hall debut where she sang excerpts from Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser was hailed by critics as “A Rousing Success”.
Acknowledged by the National Classical Singer Competition panel for her “First Class Singing”, Ms. Conviser is engaged frequently as a guest orchestral soloist throughout Europe and the Czech Republic. Recent projects featured her performing the works of Mozart, Verdi, Puccini, Wagner & Strauss, among others. In March 2018 she collaborates with the Filharmonie Hradec Králové as the soprano soloist in the Verdi Requiem and Rossini’s Stabat Mater.
Ms. Conviser is also an enthusiastic performer of German Lieder and Art Songs. Acclaimed collaborator Dalton Baldwin praised her for both her lied interpretation and vocalism, stating that her voice was that which “one recognizes immediately – radiant, resonant, true to pitch, it soars freely and delights the listener.”
