One of the greatest sopranos on the international scene is coming to Arriaga Theatre: Ermonela Jaho. The brilliant singer has recently been awarded the 2021 International Classical Music Awards for Vocal Music for her album Anima Rara.

Born in Albania Ermonela Jaho started taking singing lessons when she was only six years old. At the age of 14, on her first visit to the Tirana Opera House, she heard La Traviata and decided to become an opera singer. At 19 she moved to Rome to continue her studies at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia. Over the following years, she won many singing competitions in Italy, which opened the door to her singing career.

Ermonela Jaho’s vivid interpretations and her exceptional identification with the roles she performs are highlighted in all the critics reviews. Lauded in London, Paris, New York, Munich, Berlin, Madrid… The Economist described her as “a fiery angel, the world’s most acclaimed soprano”, The Independent as “the best Madame Butterfly London has seen in years”, The Guardian described her as “one of the great interpreters of verismo” and Australia’s Daily Telegraph as “an unstoppable phenomenon”. Ermonela Jaho’s first recital album, Anima Rara, is the best recorded example of all this acclaim.

In Anima Rara, Jaho sings arias from operas such as Puccini’s Madame Butterfly, Leoncavallo’s La Bohème, Giordano’s Siberia, Mascagni’s Lodoletta and Verdi’s La Traviata, accompanied by the Orchestra of the Comunitat Valenciana, conducted by the young Italian conductor Andrea Battistoni.
