NEWS & REVIEWS
In her house debut at Theater Basel, Corinne stars in the new Daniel Kramer production of La traviata. Audiences and critics are enthralled!
"No one could ask for more from the role: a Traviata who delivers glittering coloratura runs as well as intimate lyrical passages, extroverted self-expression, and bitterest pain with magnificent touching intensity.”
"The evening belongs to Corinne Winters, a woman with the beauty of a Catherine Zeta-Jones and the voice of a young Anna Netrebko. She makes use of the enormous range of this part with all her facets and shades. Her Violetta is frivolous, girlish, in love, humiliated, and eerily strong."
"The American Corinne Winters filled her role with vocal refinement and touching intensity – in the end, the entire audience lay at her feet without reserve.”
Corinne's return to the Konwitschny La traviata was a hit at Seattle Opera!
"Winters is theatrically and vocally the ideal fit. An intensely compelling presence, Winters’ Violetta is by turns angry, vulnerable, and gritty."
"Winters ranges convincingly from sharp and fiery to meek and broken as bodily illness and social rejection catch up with her."
"Winters is an especially compelling Violetta. She is a talented actor as well as singer, alternating power with subtlety; her performance of Violetta’s final aria was especially touching, as heartbreaking as any I have ever seen."
"On the plus side, there’s the singing, chiefly that of Corinne Winters in the title role. She is a beautiful and fearless Violetta, capable of both power and subtlety."
Corinne's debut as Desdemona in Opera Vlaanderen's Otello earned raves:
"In Corinne Winters, Michael Thalheimer has found a stunning, intense and heartbreaking Desdemona..."
Klara Classical Radio
"In all that lusciousness a sublime Corinne Winters, in her role debut as Desdemona, is the bright light..."
"With a creamy timbre and a clear underlying gravity, Winters delivers an enveloping Desdemona, fascinating with superbly controlled fil di voce."
"The Audrey Hepburn-esque Desdemona of Corinne Winters is just as strong vocally, but with grace and nuance."
Corinne starred as Mélisande in Dmitri Tcherniakov's new production of Debussy's Pelléas et Mélisande at Opernhaus Zürich. Oper Aktuell praises her as "an ideal candidate for this traumatized, enigmatic being" while Deutschlandradio Kultur writes, "Winters exudes the fascination of a very exceptional woman in every moment."
Corinne talks to Opera News about why she loves Tchaikovsky heroines, discovering new things in repeat roles, how veering off the standard path enriches her artistry, and what it's like to coach Violetta with the legendary Diana Soviero.
