Hailed for her “sublime, sparkling bronze singing” ( & “passionate interpretation” (Das Opernglas), Melissa Zgouridi is quickly establishing herself as a dynamic young singer to watch.

The American-Brazilian-Chinese mezzo opens her 2023-2024 season at Opéra Comique, singing the 3rd Weird Sister in Pascal Dusapin’s “Macbeth Underworld”, directed by Thomas Jolly & conducted by Franck Ollu. She will then reprise the role of Prinz Orlofsky in Aron Stiehl’s “Die Fledermaus” with Stadttheater Klagenfurt. Next, Melissa will cover Suzuki in Anthony Minghella’s “Madama Butterfly” at the Metropolitan Opera. Finally, Melissa will appear as Erda in a new production of “Das Rheingold” at Theater Dortmund, directed by Peter Konwitschny.

"Zgouridi dazzled as Erda with a broad voice, velvety timbre & full mastery of her instrument."



Melissa was recently profiled in the Kleine Zeitung (Austria) to talk about her operatic journey, her connection to Carinthia & "Die Fledermaus" at Stadttheater Klagenfurt
