A former member of the Salzburger Festspiele’s prestigious Young Singers Project, Irish soprano Claudia Boyle has earned her stellar international reputation through highly-acclaimed performances in Zurich, Rome, Dresden, London, Berlin, and New York. She was awarded both the first prize and critics award in the Maria Callas competition in Verona and at the International s’Hertogenbosch competition in the Netherlands.
Career highlights include her debut as Verdi’s Gilda (Rigoletto) at Teatro dell’Opera di Roma under Renato Palumbo to overwhelming audience and critical acclaim, her company debut with English National Opera as Mabel in Mike Leigh’s production of The Pirates of Penzance and her performance in Cherubini’s Chant sur la mort de Joseph Haydn under Riccardo Muti. Claudia looks forward to her main stage debut at Covent Garden early next year in Gerald Barry’s Alice’s Adventures Underground singing the title role.
With a fast expanding discography, Claudia has recorded the role of Dede in Bernstein’s A Quiet Place under the baton of Kent Nagano for DECCA and the role of ‘the Woman’ in Donnacha Dennehy and Enda Walsh’s new opera The last Hotel for Cantaloupe Music.
Later this year Claudia will once again join acclaimed tenor Joseph Calleja for an Opera Gala at the National Concert Hall. Immensely proud of her heritage, Claudia is very much looking forward to performing in Galway at the new Cellissimo festival with the wonderful Cello Ireland!
