About the Artist:
HGO Studio artist Yelena Dyachek won the Ana María Martínez Encouragement Award in the 2016 Eleanor McCollum Competition Concert of Arias; shortly thereafter, she was named a Grand Prize Winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. As a student at USC’s Thornton School of Music, she performed Frau Von Daubek in the concert premiere of Thomas Morse’s Frau Schindler, the Composer in Ariadne auf Naxos, Vitellia in La clemenza di Tito, the title role in Iphigénie en Tauride, and Madama Cortese in Il viaggio a Reims. With the Aspen Opera Center, she sang Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte (also with the Merola Opera Program) and Tatyana in Eugene Onegin. She sang First Secretary in HGO’s Nixon in China earlier this season. This summer, she returns to the Aspen Opera Center as Vitellia.
