Mezzo Wallis Giunta “steals the show” during Madison Opera debut

“Mezzo-soprano Wallis Giunta made her Madison Opera debut before some 14,000 people at Opera in the Park on Saturday.

Giunta’s jewels flashed from the stage as she swept her hand across her forehead during a romantic, lively performance of “Una voce poco fa” from “The Barber of Seville” (the third opera on Madison Opera’s 2014-15 season).

Her high notes soared; her embellishments sounded effortless. When she finished, dozens of audience members jumped from their blankets and camping chairs in effusive praise.”
