Barbara DeMaio Caprilli’s biography:

The American Soprano Barbara DeMaio Caprilli, has a deserved international fame.

Her vast repertoire includes all the great roles of a Puccini and Verdi soprano; Tosca (Palermo, Torre del Lago); Lady Macbeth (Firenze); Turandot (Genova, Torre del Lago, Cagliari, Palma de Mallorca); Aida (Caracalla, Verona, Taiwan, Avenches), Abigaille in Nabucco (Bern, Barcelona, Tel Aviv, Brussels, Torino, Genova), and also Amelia in Ballo in Maschera, Elvira in Ernani, Lucrezia in I Due Foscari, Leonora in La Forza del Destino and Odabella in La Scala’s Attila directed by Riccardo Muti.

Her interpretation of Norma at the Teatro Carlo Fenice in Genova in 1994 consecrated her as irreplaceable interpreter of this important Bellini character, and since then she has sung the role with immense success in Bologna, Marseille, Chicago and Germany.

Barbara DeMaio Caprilli is also known for her modern repertoire, including Il Caso Makropoulos in Bologna and Torino, as well as William Bolcom’s Medusa and Lee Hoiby’s Bon Appetit! with Long Leaf Opera . She has continued to add to her repertoire with highly regarded interpretations of the Witch in Hansel and Gretel with Greensboro Opera and Piedmont Opera.

In 2003 she returned to the United States, where she is a renowned teacher of both opera and Contemporary Commercial Music Styles, Director of the American Singers’ Opera Project, a Level III Certified Somatic Voicework¬© teacher and DMA Vocal Pedagogy Candidate at Shenandoah Conservatory.
