Aida, Arena di Verona, August 2022


“In the title role, Maria Josè Siri did very well, Aida who focuses above all on the lyrical side of the character. Her voice is beautiful, solid and stamped, the singing line firm and well supported, the phrasing supervised.”
Connessi all’opera

"By now the Veronese Aida par excellence, Maria Josè Siri asserted herself from the beginning without being overshadowed by her colleague: her Ethiopian princess is interpreted with a theatrical sense and refinement, immediately capturing the tragic and melancholy tinge of the character without, however, abandoning the exotic seductions of the third act, in which the Uruguayan soprano bewitches Radamès and the Arena with a persuasive “Fuggiam gli ardori inospiti”."

"A new seasonal debut alongside Jonas Kaufmann concerns the protagonist who gives the title to the opera queen of the Arena: for this one exceptional date Aida is the soprano Maria Josè Siri, internationally renowned interpreter of flexible vocalism and extraordinary personality, already applauded in the titanic role of Abigaille in Nabucco.
