Love and Figaro: Wallis Giunta finds both in Opera Lyra production (Ottawa Citizen feature)

Mezzo Soprano Wallis Giunta is featured in today’s Ottawa Citizen in a nice piece by Peter Robb. Here’s a quick quote:

“There is a whole wealth of repertoire written for a castrato, but they don’t do that anymore. All these roles now go to mezzo sopranos of a slim, not too curvy body type; younger woman who could be believable as a youth from age 12-25. Those are the roles that I do, with the occasional girl peppered in there,” Giunta says.
