"A powerful, charismatic soprano whose voice commands attention."
- CLASSICAL VOICE AMERICA
ailed as a “superb discovery” by Operà Magazine, Canadian soprano Jessica Strong has been praised for possessing “a powerful top, a seductive vibrato and assured coloratura” (Opera Canada).
This season Ms. Strong will return to her hometown in Winnipeg, Canada, to make her debut with Manitoba Opera as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni. She joins the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra as the soprano soloist in Handel's Messiah, and revisits the role of Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus with Saskatoon Opera. Recent highlights saw her debut the title role of Barber's Vanessa, and star as Marta in Weinberg's rarely performed Die Passagierin, both with Oper Frankfurt.
She is thrilled to be a 2018 Research and Creation grant recipient from the Canada Council for the Arts, as well as a second time grant recipient from FACTOR (The Foundation Assisting Canadian Talent On Recording).
