Francesca Aguado's faculty recital is canceled. She plans on presenting a recital for us in the Fall so please check back then.
American soprano Francesca Aguado has been praised for her solid sound and excellent support (Opera Britannia) and for her voice’s confident precision and articulation (The Washington Post). Her debut as Santuzza (Cavalleria Rusticana) with Miami Lyric Opera was described as an “excellent and well-nuanced” performance (translated from el Nuevo Herald). Before recently moving to the soprano repertoire she was a Benenson Young Artist with Palm Beach Opera (2018), were she performed the Baroness and covered the Old Lady (both in Candide) and covered Marcellina (Le nozze di Figaro). For the 2018/2019 season she traveled with an active recital schedule, and debuted Cherubino (Le nozze di Figaro) with Bel Cantanti Opera.
Other past operatic credits include: Rosina (Il barbiere di Siviglia); Carmen (Carmen); Musetta (La Bohême), Mother (Amahl and the Night Visitors); Ma Joad (suite version of The Grapes of Wrath, accompanied by composer Ricky Ian Gordon); Dorabella (Così fan tutte); Dinah (Trouble in Tahiti); Maurya (Riders to the Sea); the Duchess (The Gondoliers); Zweite Dame (Die Zauberflöte).
Ms. Aguado holds a Master's degree in vocal performance from Towson University and a Bachelor's degree in music from the University of Maryland. In addition to an active performance schedule, she maintains voice studios with several institutions in the Maryland area.
Since 2015 Ms. Aguado has devoted time towards helping young artists, not only in field of higher education but also as an arts administrator. She has worked with several up and coming organizations including the Mediterranean Opera Studio, overseeing its first year presenting three fully staged productions with orchestra and was the Director of Administration for Bel Canto in Tuscany, helping oversee its growth and development during its early stages. In 2019 she became the Direc tor of Operations for three festivals under Partners for the Arts Abroad (Vienna Summer Music Festival, London Summer Music Theatre Academy and the Austria Summer Music Festival).
