Hailed by Montreal’s La Presse as “a true Carmen: extremely sensual, with the grace of a serpent, the violence of a tiger, and a mezzo of penetrating depth,” Julia Mintzer enjoys a varied career in standard and contemporary repertoire in the United States and Europe. She was member of the Junges Ensemble at the Semperoper Dresden and a young artist at the Washington National Opera. She has returned to Washington National Opera as Hansel and to the Dresden Semperoper as Mercédès. She sang the first staged performance of David Lang’s Little Match Girl Passion at the Glimmerglass Festival and the world premiere of Tsangaris’s Karl May: Raum der Wahrheit at the Dresden Semperoper. This year at Theater Aachen, she performs the roles of Elisabetta in Maria Stuarda, Preziosilla in La forza del Destino and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony. Previously she joined the Landestheater Schleswig-Holstein to sing the title role in Carmen, and Elisabetta in Maria Stuarda, returning for Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana and Giulietta in Les Contes d’Hoffman, before reprising the title role in Carmen at Theater Lüneburg. Julia graduated from The Juilliard School and the Boston University Opera Institute. Her concert engagements include Handel’s Messiah with Boston Baroque, Washington National Cathedral, and the Toledo Symphony and Mozart’s Requiem at Washington National Cathedral. Also a stage director, Julia was the 2017 Winner of the National Opera Association’s JoElyn Wakefield-Wright Directing Fellowship. Her interactive theater piece Pizza Parlance was listed in Nombre Art Magazine’s “5 Must-Sees of Venice Biennale” and she has directed and developed new works at the Helsinki Festival, NRW-Forum Düsseldorf, and Cornell University. www.juliamintzer.com
