Adela Zaharia, soprano (Romania)

Camerata Salzburg
Adela Zaharia has purst celestial soprano. In 2017, this Romanian singer made a sensation during one of the world’s most prestigious opera competitions “Operalia” of Placido Domingo. There she won Gran Prix!

Today Adela is a world opera star. She was brilliant as Violetta in “Traviata” staged at the Los Angeles Opera, as Gilda and Mary Stuart in respectively “Rigoletto” and “Mary Stuart” staged in German Deutsche Oper am Rhein… She is also no stranger to contemporary music, in 2018, for instance, she sang at the premiere of the English composer Iain Bell's “Aurora”. 

Her repertoire can be very vast, but a very special place in it occupies Mozart. She sang Donna Anna (“Don Giovanni”), Pamina (“Magic Flute”), and Konstanze (“The Abduction from the Seraglio”).

Legendary chamber orchestra Camerata Salzburg is on stage with Adela. This legendary orchestra, founded in 1951 by Bernhard Paumgartner at Mozarteum University Salzburg, is considered a benchmark of Mozart’s music, with its reference “Mozart sound”. Camerata Salzburg is a resident of Salzburg Festival.
