La sonnambula in DVD

Performance at Cagliari.

The June, 2011 issue of Opera News says that Ms Gutiérrez's performance in this DVD is a "remarkable feat of singing beyond the capabilities (past, present or future) of most of the sopranos the Met has been entrusting with bel canto roles. Furthermore, Gutiérrez is a lovely and appealing young woman, utterly sincere as the hapless somnambulist. The great final scena is both movingly and triumphantly sung. Brava Diva!"

A fast rising star on the international opera scene, Cuban-American soprano Eglise Gutiérrez, is blazing her way across the operatic stages of Europe and America with her committed embodiments of the bel canto coloratura heroines.

Proclaimed "Artist of the Year 2009" at Finland's Savonlinna Opera Festival, Ms Gutiérrez graces world-wide stages with her signature performances of the heroines of the bel canto masterpieces, Lucia di Lammermoor and La Sonnambula and I Puritani.

Her concert performance debut at the Covent Garden took place in September of 2009 in the title role of the rare Donizetti opera, Linda di Chamounix, issued by Opera Rara.

In addition to the role of Amina, in 2012 Ms Gutiérrez was featured at Covent Garden in the role of the Fée in Massenet's rarely performed Cendrillon... a role in which she triumphed at the Santa Fe opera in 2006 and at the Opéra Comique in 2010. Of the Santa Fe performance the San Francisco Chronicle said that Ms Gutiérrez "unleashed a glistening, almost maniacal torrent of exquisitely placed sound.". Of the Paris performances, Opera News said that Ms Gutiérrez exhibited "a full-bodied dramatic coloratura, with an exotic presence and vocal panache."

In 2013 Ms. Gutiérrez will make her début at Barcelona's Teatro Liceu playing all four heroines of Les contes d'Hoffmann

A three-time recipient of the Gerda Lissner Foundation Grant and grant recipient of the Singers Development Foundation, Gutiérrez’s long list of honors also includes winner of the Montserrat Caballé International Opera Competition, First Prize in the August 2004 International Mirjam Helin Competition in Helsinki, Zachary Competition, first place in the Marian Anderson Opera Competition, second place in the Licia Albanese Puccini Foundation Opera Competition in 2002. She won first place in the Giargirai Bel Canto Opera Competition, second place in the Orlando Opera and J. Parkinson Italia Opera Competitions in 2001, and received first prize in the Sun Coast Opera Competition in 2000.
