International Irish mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught will step in this week with the acclaimed Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra at Heinz Hall, where she will perform Marguerite in the symphony's March 8 and 10 concerts of Berlioz's Damnation of Faust. She steps in for French mezzo-soprano Clementine Margaine, who had to withdraw due to illness (see attached press release from the symphony).

The performances will mark Ms. Erraught's debut with Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, as well as her debut in the role. Rarely staged, the symphony describes the work as " a powerful, blockbuster work that is considered a 'dramatic legend,' neither a symphony nor an opera." The concerts will feature a 98-piece orchestra led by Music Director Manfred Honeck, along with over 170 chorus members (the Mendelssohn Choir of Pittsburgh and Pittsburgh Youth Chorus). Ms. Erraught joins soloists Charles Castronovo, Luca Pisaroni, and Alexander Birch Elliott.

Rossini’s effervescent take on the Cinderella story returns, with rising star mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught in the title role and tenor sensation Javier Camarena as her Prince Charming.

"Tara Erraught is gently angelic as the neglected Angelina (Cenerentola), her earlier arias glinting with longing and final forgiveness alight with gorgeous vocal flair."

Oct-8-2018

"Tara Erraught gave us a gently humane Angelina, whose attempt to reconcile herself with Don Magnifico and her sisters is genuinely touching; so too is her relationship with the actor-mice, where her kindness and empathy for her fellow downtrodden creatures glows warmly. Her voice is richer and smokier than your usual mezzo, with the charcoal shading of the contralto lower down."

Oct-8-2018

"And in Tara Erraught, WNO has a natural Angelina. The Irish mezzo’s voice is warm as smouldering embers, tender throughout, with unfaltering coloratura. She’s down to earth but a dreamer, wise about the world but innocently hopeful. Even in this cartoonish universe, this Cenerentola’s thoughts and feelings seemed real."
