Praised by Opera News as a “silvery-luminescent mezzo-soprano of power and poise,” Sofia Selowsky continues to establish herself as an exciting artist on both the operatic and concert stage. Ms. Selowsky begins her 18/19 season in recital with Bethany Self under the auspices of the Metropolitan Opera National Council and returns to Ars Lyrica Houston as the title role in Handel’s Agrippina. She makes her orchestral debuts in Handel’s Messiah with the Kansas City Symphony and in Mozart’s Requiem with the Charlotte Symphony. Ms. Selowsky will also make her role debut in concert as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with the Jacksonville Symphony.
In her 17/18 season, Ms. Selowsky joined the Houston Ballet for its production of Sir Kenneth MacMillan’s Mayerling, the Lexington Philharmonic for performances of Dominick Argento’s Casa Guidi, and the North Carolina Symphony for Mozart’s Requiem. In the spring, she returned to the Houston Grand Opera to make her role debut as Rosina in Il barbiere di Siviglia, for which she was praised by Opera News for her “honey-rich sound,” “silvery top end,” and “amazingly clear passagework.” Additional role and house debuts included Mercédes inCarmen with the Atlanta Opera and the Stewardess in Jonathan Dove’s Flight with Des Moines Metro Opera.
