Fabiana Bravo

Fabiana Bravo, is an acclaimed Argentine operatic soprano, who has achieved international success both through her interpretation of concert literature and in her powerful portrayals of operatic heroines. In 1999, she was named Argentina’s Woman of the Year for her remarkable contributions to the arts. After an early career in musical theatre, she was introduced to the famous singer Luciano Pavarotti. She won his international competition, and also received numerous awards as a Plácido Domingo Operalia Finalist, Opera Index winner and Met Council Winner of the Regional Finalist Competition.

Ms. Bravo made her operatic debut in the role of Lucia di Lammermoor at the Academy of Music in Philadelphia with Luciano Pavarotti. Her other roles include Tosca, Countess Almaviva, Leonora, Giorgetta and Madama Butterfly in some of the world’s most renowned houses. She was added to the Metropolitan Opera Roster in the 2001/2002 season, and continues to perform in New York, Washington, D.C, San Francisco, and Chicago with regularity.

In recent years, Ms. Bravo has sung the Countess Almaviva in Le Nozze di Figaro (1997), Mimi in La Boheme (1998), Donna Anna in Don Giovanni (1999) and the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos (2002) all in opera productions of Washington D.C’s Summer Opera Theatre Company. She also sings with Virginia Opera, where her performance of Donna Anna brought her recognition as a much sought-after artist.

It was a personally tailored full scholarship program at The Catholic University of America that brought Fabiana Bravo from Argentina to Washington DC. From there she also studied interpretation at the Renata Scotto Institute in Savona, Italy, where she personally worked with Ms. Scotto at great length. She then studied verdian repertoire at the Verdi Opera Studio in Parma, Italy. Finally, she accepted a one year scholarship program to study in Voghera, Italy, at the Academy of Vocal Arts.

Fabiana Bravo met with and performed for the United States Supreme Court in 1999, and has brought recognition of her hometown of Mendoza, Argentina, through a series of very popular South American Recitals. She is now a renowned name in the international opera world, and performs in concert and opera throughout the world. Ms. Bravo currently resides in Washington, DC and Mendoza, Argentina.
