Carmen Giannattasio

– World management –

Carmen Giannattasio studied singing at the Avellino Conservatory and was a member of the opera studio at Teatro alla Scala in Milan. In 2002, she won the Operalia singing competition in Paris and sang Desdemona (Otello) at the Los Angeles Opera. This was followed by appearances at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden in London, the Metropolitan Opera in New York, Teatro alla Scala, the Bavarian State Opera, the Bolshoi Theatre, the Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris and the opera houses of San Francisco, Vienna, Madrid, Berlin, Brussels, Turin, Venice, Naples, Amsterdam, Hamburg and the Aix-en-Provence Festival, among others.


In the 2020/21 season Carmen Giannattasio guested at the Teatro Massimo Palermo in Il Crepuscolo dei Sogni/Traumdämmerung (based on an idea by Johannes Erath), as Tosca at Sydney Opera, and as Alice Ford in a new production of Falstaff in Aix-en-Provence. Further engagements, including Norma and Mimì (La bohème) in Hamburg, as well as Amalia (I masnadieri) in Munich unfortunately fell victim to cancellations in the fight against the Corona pandemic.


Highlights of the 2021/22 season were the season opening at the Vienna State Opera with Tosca, Falstaff at the Lyon Opera and La Wally with the Munich Radio Orchestra. In the role of Tosca she also celebrated a great success at the Festival in Macerata.


Future engagements will take the artist back to the Deutsche Oper Berlin, where she has been invited to sing Giorgetta (Il Tabarro) and the title role in La Gioconda.


Her repertoire includes roles such as Mimì (La bohème), Desdemona (Otello), Leonora (Il trovatore), Amelia (Un ballo in maschera), Mrs Alice Ford (Falstaff) and the title roles in Aida, Tosca and Norma.


She has worked with renowned conductors such as James Conlon, Myung-Whun Chung , Diego Matheuz, Zubin Mehta, Sir Antonio Pappano, Daniele Rustioni, Pinchas Steinberg and Omer Meir Wellber.


Carmen Giannattasio is an ambassador for the jewelers Bulgari and is outfitted by the designer Antonio Riva. She is also an ambassador for Italian perfume brand Carthusia and Swiss luxury skincare brand La Prairie.


In February 2017, Carmen Giannattasio was honored with the title of Cavaliere dell’Ordine della Stella della Repubblica Italiana.
