Marina Rebeka, whose “ravishing” singing in Rossini’s Petite messe solonelle graced the recently released recording conducted by Antonio Pappano, has recorded her first operatic recital for Warner Classics. Mozart Heroines features the young Latvian soprano as Donna Anna and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), the Countess (Le nozze di Figaro), Fiordiligi (Così fan tutte), Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail), Elettra (Idomeneo), and Queen of the Night and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte). Supporting her is the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra under the baton of Speranza Scappucci.

Donna Anna has been a signature role for Marina, who made her debuts at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, the Wiener Staatsoper and the Opernhaus Zurich in the role. Following her Met debut in 2012, Anthony Tommasini wrote in The New York Times, “The striking Latvian soprano Marina Rebeka was a winning Donna Anna, singing with a clear, bright sound and cool intensity.” Of her Deutsche Oper Berlin debut the Berliner Zeitung wrote, “ “Marina Rebeka as Donna Anna, as it should be, is the expressive heart of this musically intimate and high-class performance. She has what it takes to be a hit with the audience” and theaterkritiken-berlin wrote, “Bewitchingly beautiful with her clear, agile coloratura, Marina Rebeka charmed as Donna Anna“.

Marina Rebeka was born in Riga, where she began her musical studies. She attended the Internationale Sommerakademie Universität Mozarteum in Salzburg and the Accademia Rossiniana in Pesaro and graduated in 2007 from the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia in Rome, winning vocal prizes along the way in Italy and Germany. Her international breakthrough came at the 2009 Salzburg Festival, when she sang Anaï in a new production of Rossini’s Moïse et Pharaon under the baton of Riccardo Muti. In the ensuing four years Marina Rebeka’s career has skyrocketed and she has become a sought-after artist at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, the Royal Opera House in London, Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro alla Scala, Milan, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Festspielhaus Baden-Baden, Rossini Opera Festival, Pesaro and Maggio Musicale Fiorentino.

BBC Music Magazine

It says much for Rebeka’s versatility and technical expertise that she brings so much of this contrasting material to life. Not everything, though, is ideally voiced…But her engagement with the text is evident throughout…Scappucci brings insight to the accompaniments, drawing fine playing from the Liverpool musicians.

Gramophone Magazine

strong, bright, evenly produced tone, a shapely sense of line and precise coloratura…In the two Queen of the Night arias she unleashes spitfire coloratura to bring the house down…Best of is her Elettra in Idomeneo, sung with an ideal baleful, impassioned grandeur…her debut recital announces a soprano of impressive vocal accomplishment and, at her best, dramatic flair.

International Record Review

there is no lack of fluency in Marina Rebeka’s technique, but I suspect her timbre may well divide opinion. To my ears it is a bright – possibly over-bright – lyric soprano with a glassy, slightly hollow edge

Opera Now

Rebeka’s approach to Mozart’s great soprano arias is just ideal. She gives every phrase time and space to fulfil its emotional potential. Her effortless singing lets you sit back, forget the technical complexities and revel in radiant sound…Highly recommended.
