Project Description

“You didn’t need to understand the text about the “silvery moon in the velvet night” in Dvorak’s “Song to the Moon” from Rusalka: It was all right there in the silvery orchestrations, and in the velvet soprano voice of Elena Perroni.” – Philadelphia Inquirer – Welch National Opera 2021 – The Daily Telegraph

Elena Perroni

Ms. Perroni made her professional debut with Opera Philadelphia, singing the role of Doris Parker in Charlie Parker’s Yardbird, at the legendary Apollo Theatre in New York City, and reprised the role in her English National Opera debut.  As a graduate of the world-renowned Curtis Institute of Music, last season she joined other fellow alumni for a European chamber music tour to Greece, Italy, Germany, and Spain, and she was also heard in concert with the Cleveland Chamber Music Society. This fall she returned to her native country for Mimi in La Boheme with the West Australian Opera. Future engagements include Gilda in Rigoletto with New Zealand Opera.

Recent engagements include the title role of Iolanta with West Australian Opera, and Britten’s War Requiem with the West Australian Symphony Orchestra alongside maestro Asher Fisch, both which received great acclaim. She also recently debuted Carnegie Hall performing Schubert’s Mass in G, Brahms’ Ein Deutches Requiem with West Australian Symphony Orchestra, and made her role debut as Violetta in Verdi’s La Traviata for West Australian Opera.

In addition to her recent successes on the operatic stage, Ms. Perroni is quickly making a name for herself in the concert hall.  In 2017, she made her Philadelphia Orchestra debut singing selections from Dvorak’s Rusalka. She returned to the Philadelphia Orchestra  in 2018 in a concert featuring selection from Eugene Onegine as Tatyana, and for Nuits d’ete. Other concert engagements include Mimi in La Boheme with Quad Cities Symphony Orchestra, Juliet in Tchaikovsky’s Romeo & Guliet with the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra, Sister Constance in Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmelites with West Australian Opera, and Maria in Leonard Berstein’s West Side Story, with the Reno Philharmonic.

Ms. Perroni is a recent graduate of the world renowned Curtis Institute of Music, where she has performed many leading roles including Adina in Donezetti’s  L’elisir d’Amore, the title role in Massenet’s Manon, Anne Truelove in Stravinsky’s  The Rake’s Progress, Susanna in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, as well as Lauretta Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi, and Magda in La Rondine.  Ms. Perroni has also performed the leading roles of Mimi in La Boheme and Gilda in Verdi’s Rigoletto at the Chautauqua Music Festival.

In 2018 Elena was both a NY regional winner in the Loren L. Zachery competition and a semi-finalist in the Belvedere Competition.
