ABOUT

Hailed for her “enchantingly beautiful mezzo, strong characterization & [voice] full of colors” (Saarbrücker Zeitung), Melissa Zgouridi is quickly making a name for herself both in Europe & in her native USA. The young Brazilian-American-Chinese singer joined the ensemble of the Saarländisches Staatstheater in 2021. Melissa will be making several role debuts in the 2022/2023 season, including the title role of Carmen, Erda & Floßhilde in "Das Rheingold", Orlofsky in "Die Fledermaus", Flora in "La Traviata" and will create the role of Laertes in the World Premiere of Sarah Nemtsov’s "Ophelia". In May 2023, she will sing Erda at the Opéra Royal de Versailles in a concert version of "Das Rheingold".

"Zgouridi as Erda
is positively spellbinding with
her grandiose voice."
