Wallis Giunta

Irish-Canadian mezzo, Wallis Giunta, is the 2018 International Opera Awards “Young Singer of the Year”, and was named in 2018 both “Young Artist of the Year” by The Arts Desk and “Breakthrough Artist in UK Opera” in the What’s On Stage Opera Awards. She has been praised by OPERA NEWS for her “delectably rich, silver-toned mezzo-soprano, with a beautiful sense of line and effortless, rapid runs”, with her performance as Mozart’s Sesto for the Canadian Opera Company celebrated as “a triumph…remarkable in its combination of intelligence and beauty”.
In the 23/24 season, Wallis will debut at Carnegie Hall, with the Wiener Symphoniker in concert, with Opéra de Lausanne, and at the Maison Symphonique in Montreal. She will also star in the title role of a major premiere at the Vienna Volksoper, where she will be in her second season as a member of their new ensemble. Her 22/23 repertoire at the Volksoper includes Cenerentola, Hänsel, Orlofsky, Cherubino and two roles in the world premiere of Die Letzte Verschwörung (Eggert).
Wallis is the grateful recipient of the multiple international prizes nd several major grants from the Canada Council for the Arts. Wallis is a 2013 graduate of both the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artist Development Program & the Juilliard School’s Artist Diploma in Opera Studies, and a 2011 graduate of the Canadian Opera Company Ensemble Studio.
