On May 16, 2019 Maria José Siri will make her house debut at the Hessisches Staatstheater Wiesbaden, singing Amelia in a special one-off gala performance of Un ballo in maschera as part of theater’s International May Festival. The performance will be conducted by Christoph Stiller, and will feature staging by Beka Savić. Joining Ms. Siri on stage will be Stefano La Colla, Vladislav Sulimsky, Monika Bohinec, and Shira Patchornik among others.
As Amelia, Ms. Siri has most recently been heard at the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona. Other engagements as Amelia include productions at La Monnaie in Brussels and at the Teatro Comunale in Bologna, where she made her debut in the role during the 2014/2015 season.
