Hailed by critics for her “ethereal”, “powerful yet lucid”, and “silvery bright” voice, Canadian soprano Ellen Wieser turns heads, both on stage and in concert. Her commanding stage presence has been described as “tremendous”, “especially compelling”, “vibrant” and “a ray of sunshine”, and has led to operatic and concert engagements with reputed Symphony and Chamber Orchestras and Opera companies across the United States, Canada and Asia. Recent career highlights have included solo appearances at the Jeonju International Sori Festival and with the Korea Union Orchestra in South Korea, Steve Reich’s Tehillim with the Winnipeg Symphony Orchestra, the roles of Clorinda (Cinderella) and Frasquita (Carmen) with Opera Lyra Ottawa, and Countess Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) with Montreal’s Opera da Camera. She also created the role of Justice Ginsburg in the world premiere of Scalia-Ginsburg at the Castleton Festival.
A graduate of the prestigious San Francisco Opera Merola Opera Program, Ellen also holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Manitoba, School of Music, a Masters of Music degree and Artist Diploma from the University of Cincinnati, College-Conservatory of Music.
