Mezzo-Soprano, Carla Jablonski, has been hailed a “seasoned and multi-dimensional” young performer. She has been building a name for herself as an exciting and promising young actress on both the concert and operatic stage with her “appealingly burnished tone” as described by The New York Times. She received her Masters Degree from The Juilliard School and has sung with Wolf Trap Opera Company, Chautauqua Opera and Central City Opera. Awards include a Drama Desk in theatre, ASCAP, Bori Grant, and Novick Career Advancement Award. She recently performed in a co-production between the Metropolitan Opera and The Juilliard School conducted by James Levine and directed by Stephen Wadsworth. She sang the role of La Ciesca in Gianni Schicchi and reprised the role with Central City Opera Company. Other highlights include Mère Jeanne in Dialogues des Carmélites, Mrs. Jones in Kurt Weill’s Street Scene and Thelma Yablonski in John Musto’s Later the Same Evening. This season at FGO she will perform the roles of Lady #3 in Die Zauberflöte and Annina in La traviata. The Pittsburgh native made her Lincoln Center debut at Alice Tully Hall singing Five Songs by Charles Ives arranged for orchestra by John Adams. She returned to the Tully stage to sing the role of Fileno in Handel’s Clori, Tirsi, e Fileno under the baton of Maestro Nicholas Mcgegan. This past December Ms. Jablonski made her Carnegie Hall debut as the alto soloist in Handel’s Messiah and recently sang Bernstein’s Jeremiah with NYYS and El amor Brujo with the Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra.
