Corinne Winters


— Soprano

"Having made a splash with her London debut in this very production, Corinne Winters is theatrically and vocally the ideal fit for Konwitschny’s vision. An intensely compelling presence, Winters’ Violetta is by turns angry, vulnerable, and gritty. Fascinatingly, she was at her most desperately moving in the first act, showing compassion for Alfredo’s humiliation and physically shielding him from the taunting chorus. Vocally, her rich soprano best suits the spinto outbursts of Act II, though she ably navigated the Act I coloratura with fearless brilliance and a ringing E flat. Best of all, her nuanced shading and projection of the text eliminated the need for the projected supertitles."
Kevin Ng, Bachtrack - Violetta in 'La traviata' at Seattle Opera

“Corinne Winters has a very pretty soprano voice, with warmth, real character and not a hint of wobble: her Act I aria “Come scoglio” (Like a rock) applied rather more correctly to Winters’ singing technique than to Fiordiligi’s constancy.”
David Karlin, Bachtrack - Fiordiligi in 'Cosi fan tutte' at Royal Opera House-Covent Garden

"Corinne Winters, in peachy voice, offered an impish Alice, leading Windsor's 'Merry Wives' in their plotting to teach Sir John a lesson or two. Deliciously phrased, Winters' Alice is the real deal, soaring in ensemble, sighing in mock adoration at Falstaff's clumsy courting."
Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack - Alice Ford in 'Falstaff' with City or Birmingham Orchestra

"In all that darkness, the light of this performance is Desdemona. In Corinne Winters, Michael Thalheimer has found a stunning, intense and heartbreaking Desdemona, who draws you in with her arias."
Klara Classical Radio - Desdemona in 'Otello' at Opera Vlaanderen

“Winters is the best ENO Violetta in decades, and worth the ticket price alone...”
Hugh Canning, The Sunday Times - Violetta in 'La Traviata' at the English National Opera

About

Acclaimed by The New York Times as “an outstanding actress, as well as a singer of extraordinary grace and finesse,” soprano Corinne Winters returned to the Royal Opera House Covent Garden this summer as Violetta in La traviata. This marked her first London appearances in her signature role since her explosive European debut in the 2013 Peter Konwitschny production at English National Opera, which landed her on the cover of Opera magazine. In the 2017/18 season, Corinne brings her Violetta to Theater Basel, for her house debut in a new Daniel Kramer production . . .
