“Ermonela Jaho, who made her Washington National Opera debut as Butterfly, is a true singing actress, conveying emotion and character through her voice, so that Butterfly’s familiar plight became freshly heartbreaking… “Un bel di,” as sung by Jaho with quiet purity, was a knockout.”
Washington Post, 7 May 2017

Ermonela Jaho

Macbeth Media Relations first met soprano Ermonela Jaho when she took the title role in Opera Rara’s concert performance and recording of Leoncavallo’s Zazà. We were not alone in finding her energy and commitment a complete joy. At the end of the season she carried off the Audience Prize at the International Opera Awards for her performance in Suor Angelica as part of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden’s production of Il trittico. Our collaboration has since taken a broader brief, and we are now working directly with Ermonela to develop her international profile. This season’s focus will be her return in Autumn 2017 to Munich’s Bayerische Staatsoper to reprise the title role of Suor Angelica in a new production created especially for her by Lotte de Beer and conducted by Kirill Petrenko.
