NATALIE BERGERON – PHOTO GALLERY
American Soprano Natalie Bergeron is a native of Birmingham, Alabama but currently resides in New York and studies with Bill Schuman. Recently, she has made her Italian debut as Andrea Chenier’s Maddalena opposite Marcello Giordani and Alberto Gazale with the Orchestra Sinfonica la Verdi of Milan. She has also recently won the Liederkranz International Wagner Competition, which provided her with a debut at Carnegie Hall, as well as an invitation to the Evelyn Lear, Thomas Stewart Young Emerging Wagnerian Artists Foundation in Washington DC.
Natalie’s voice is full yet agile, permitting her to perform not merely traditional opera but contemporary too, as it can be seen by her participation in the world premiere of Bruno Rigacci’s opera Dodici Personaggi in Cerca di Voce, in the role of Blanche Germont. After making her Israeli debut in Don Carlo, Ernani and La Forza del Destino, the Jerusalem Post wrote: – Natalie Bergeron has a big and beautiful voice which she uses skilfully in an stirring way.
She has recently had the pleasure of performing Ines while covering Leonora in Verdi’s
Il Trovatore in her Opera Memphis main stage debut, and has performed a variety of roles including the Countess Almaviva in Mozart’s Le Nozze di Figaro, Lehar’s The Merry Widow, and Puccini’s La Bohème. She has performed as a guest artist with such organizations as the Alabama Symphony, The Huxford Symphony, The Tuscaloosa Symphony, and in Tel Aviv with the Israel Chamber Orchestra and the Teatro Bellini in Catania.
Future performances will include Elisabetta in Don Carlo in Alabama, Abigaille in Nabucco at Arena di Verona in 2013 summer season, as well as three more concerts at the Auditorium Verdi of Milan in arias and duets of Verdi, and the stunningly beautiful R. Strauss’ Vier Letzte Lieder.
