Known for her range of repertoire, from Vivaldi to operatic roles Carmen and Rosina, as well as her interpretation of contemporary works, Marion brings her “beautiful, velvety voice... agile technique” and  “breadth of vocal colours” to this intimate concert with piano and drum, which draws on her recent performances of “Singing the Earth” (Anna Höstman), “Thunderbird” (Dustin Peters), Tobin Stokes' “Klee Wyck”, and Marion’s own composition, "Kinanu".

Viva EspanaJOIN ACCLAIMED CANADIAN MEZZO SOPRANO MARIA SOULIS AND GUITARIST WILLIAM BEAUVAIS ON A SIZZLING TOUR FROM ANATOLIA (TURKEY AND GREECE) TO SPAIN, FEATURING FOLK SONGS ARRANGED BY DE FALLA.

 

Maria's voice has been described by European critics as “warm and powerful”, “gorgeous, dusky-toned”, and “full of warmth and drama” with “a ruby-red timbre”.

Maria also draws on her Greek heritage, singing Garcia Lorca texts translated and set to music by Greece's foremost composer, Mikis Theodorakis, of Zorba the Greek fame. These songs lend

themselves beautifully to voice and guitar. Maria's warm and friendly stage presence will draw in your audience – the show is spiced up with violin and castanets (plus a visit by that  famous Spanish gypsy, Carmen!).
