Boston based mezzo-soprano Vera Savage’s recent career highlights include the role of Sesto in Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito with Opera in the Heights in Houston, TX, Verdi’s Requiem in Boston, MA; and a complete performance of Dominick Argento’s song cycle From the Diary of Virginia Woolf. With the Opera Institute in Boston, MA, Vera was seen as Almera in Nico Muhly’s Dark Sisters, the Old Prioress in Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites, Flora in La Traviata, and Madeline Mitchell in Jake Heggie’s Three Decembers. The Boston Music Intelligencer described her portrayal of Mitchell as playing “a convincing diva… able to sing powerfully both operatically and as a Broadway baby”, and from the Bostonist, “Vera Savage was… stunning – a radiant and solid sound that brazenly approached even the most challenging moments of Heggie’s score.”
Upcoming engagements include Tisbe in Rossini’s La Cenerentola with Opera Saratoga, performances with Boston Lyric Opera, and Handel’s Israel in Egypt in Boston, MA.
Vera is thrilled to make her debut with Florentine Opera as Mrs. Baines in Elmer Gantry.
