Ivanna Speranza is a lyric coloratura soprano and she was born in Cordoba, Argentina. Aged 20, she traveled to Italy in order to complete her vocal training and there she studied with Arrigo Pola – who was Luciano Pavarotti’s teacher – and with Mirella Freni.
Her attitude to singing is at once passionate and practical, a thrilling mixture of optimism, single- minded determination and a steadfast commitment to making the best of her considerable talent. Ivanna Speranza embodies a new image of operatic singing, far from the dusty stereotype of the highbrow entertainment for refined elites, bringing back opera’s original essence and intent: the fervent expression of human passions.
Just like the heroines that she plays on stage, Ivanna had to overcome hardships and obstacles in pursuit of her dream. At last, after years of intense studying and an increasingly successful stage career, she hit the goal of her first album. Virtuosity Arias was released in March 2014 by italian label Sfem.
“Ivanna Speranza: la forza del destino [The Power of Fate] in her name and in her voice. Just like Kylie Minogue in pop music, Ivanna Speranza radiates the bewitching charm of a pocket- sized venus of operatic singing”
Mara Pedrabissi – GAZZETTA DI PARMA
“A rewarding challenge: Ivanna Seranza’s Violetta Valéry was impeccably sung as well as be- autifully played.”
Sandra de la Fuente – EL CLARIN
“Her breathtaking coloratura could shame more than a few soubrettes.”
Hector Coda – LA NACION
“Argentinian soprano Ivanna Speranza took the limelight during that concert with her amazing voice. This beautiful siren sang dramatic arias from operas such as Bellini’s La Sonnambula and Mozart’s Così fan tutte. She won the audience over when she sang Verdi’s famous aria Caro Nome from Rigoletto. The way she interpolated the high E note at the end of the song was an absolutely beautiful and unequivocal success.”
