Noon Edition

Operatic Soprano Carol Vaness

San Diego-born Carol Vaness launched her professional singing career at the New York City Opera, where she appeared regularly from 1979 to 1983.

Since then she has sung on the world’s major stages and at premier music festivals, collaborated with today’s foremost conductors in operatic and symphonic repertoires, appeared on numerous television broadcasts throughout North America and Europe, and compiled a distinguished catalog of recordings.

Her interpretations of Mozart’s dramatic heroines, including Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, Donna Anna and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Elettra in Idomeneo, and Vitellia in La Clemenza di Tito, have been hailed as definitive.

She performed the title role of Puccini’s Tosca at the Metropolitan Opera opposite Pavarotti in his final operatic performance.
