Corinne Winters



Acclaimed by The New York Times as “an outstanding actress, as well as a singer of extraordinary grace and finesse,” American soprano Corinne Winters has performed over thirty leading roles at major opera houses around the world.

Corinne begins her 23/24 season as a featured soloist with the Sun Symphony Orchestra for the opening of the new Ho Guom opera house in Hanoi, Vietnam, followed by her debut with the Berliner Philharmoniker in Dvořák’s Stabat Mater and a return to the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia for Dvořák’s cantata The Spectre’s Bride, both conducted by Jakub Hrůša. For her debut at the Teatro Real, Corinne will reprise the title role in Moniuszko’s Halka in concert, alongside Piotr Beczała. This season also marks her debut at the Wiener Staatsoper in the title role of Rusalka, a role she will debut at Opéra Royal de Wallonie-Liège earlier in the season. Further operatic appearances include performances of Madama Butterfly, one of her signature roles, at Opéra Nice Côte d’Azur and San Diego Opera, and her debut at Festival d’Aix-en-Provence in a title role, to be announced soon. Future seasons include debuts with Bayerische Staatsoper, Houston Grand Opera, Staatsoper Berlin, and the Metropolitan Opera, among others.

“Winters was an exquisite Tatyana with a beautiful and ravishing tone. Quite superb was her ‘Letter Scene’ in which Tatyana pours out her heart to the man with whom she is passionately in love. This scene was surely one of the highlights of the performance.”

Grosse Pointe News (Dina Winter)

Gardiner has an excellent ear for singers and he chose a great soloist quartet for this operatic mass for the dead. The soprano had a very flexible voice, flawless, with an interesting timbre, well placed piano and forte singing that carried over the wave of the orchestra. Winters is currently one of the most famous Traviatas on the operatic stage and it was easy to hear why. Her Verdian phrasing was stylish and she used beautiful Italianate ornamentation as well.”

“Corinne Winters gives a performance of genius, with a wonderfully supple voice…Her ‘Amami Alfredo’ was the most heart–rending since Renata Scotto.”

The Spectator (Michael Tanner)

““Winters is the best ENO Violetta in decades, and worth the ticket price alone…”
