Marina Viotti, mezzo-soprano new article content ...
Marina was born in Switzerland, her parents both being musicians, and grew up in France. She got a diploma of flute at 17 years old. Curious by nature, she did not only study classical music, but also explored jazz, metal or chanson. After a Master's degree for philosophy and literature, she went to Vienna where she started her vocal education with Heidi Brunner in 2011, and continued with Brigitte Balleys in HEMU Lausanne in 2013. She currently works with Raul Gimenez.
Her roles at the opera include : Arsace in Aureliano in Palmira (Rossini) and Isabella in L’italiana in Algeri at the Rossini festival in Wildbad (DE) and at the Luzerner Theater where she also sang Elisabetta in Maria Stuarda(Donizetti) and La Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein (Offenbach) ; The Mother in Amahl (Menotti) and Dritte Dame in Zauberflöte (Mozart) at the Opéra de Lausanne, Melibea in Il Viaggio a Reims at the Liceu Barcelona, Olga in Onegin (Tchaikovsky) swell as Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia (Rossini) at the Opéra du Rhin. She is making her debut in Zürich this year, and will debut in Dresden, La Scala and Munich next season.
Marina has also been heard in several concerts as a soloist: El amor brujo (De Falla) with the OSI, Mozart Messe en Ut with Gli Angeli, La Petite Messe solennelle (Rossini), Der Rose Pilgerfahrt (Schumann), Kindertotenlieder (Mahler) with the OCL, Verdi Requiem, Les Nuits d’été (Berlioz) with Macon orchestra, Le poème de l'amour et de la mer (Chausson) in Bremen, Beethoven 9th with several orchestras, Pergolesi "Stabat Mater" with the OCL, Händel's Messiah in Grenoble.
She also is a regular guest of many festivals (Label Suisse, Festival de la Cité, Lavaux Classic, Périgord Noir...) with her recital “Love has no borders”, touring from Switzerland to Brasil and Japan. Marina is lauréate of several Foundations (Mosetti, Migros, Leenards, Weltner…). She recently was a finalist in Operalia Competion, won the first price of the Kattenburg Competition in 2017, the 3d price at the Concours de Genève in 2016, and the International Belcanto Price at the Rossini Festival of Wildbad in 2015.
Marina Viotti is well-known for her will to explore,to approach other genres, other people : “with a musical ease, a disarming naturality, she is spinning from one style to the other one.” Reason enough to create new projects including the big repertoire of the opera as well as cabaret, jazz or chanson.
