Elena Perroni




Mimi, La Boheme, Opera in the Park , West Australian Opera 
“…Perroni, in her first Australian professional engagement, sang with a focused, pearly soprano that had fragility but bloomed wonderfully when required”.
Rosalind Appleby, Opera Magazine, May 2018 

“…As Mimi, she did not disappoint, her soprano so full and flexible, yet so capable of expressing fragility and mortality with incongruity”.
William Yeoman, The West Australian,  5 February 2018 

Magda, La Rondine, Curtis Opera Theatre
“The cast was consistently appealing and vocally capable…with Elena Perroni making sense of the central role of Magda, both vocally and theatrically.”

Susanna, Le Nozzze di Figaaro, Curtis Opera Theatre
“Elena Perroni, equally gifted vocally, was an utterly adorable Susanna”
Seen and Heard International, 2016

Anne Truelove, The Rake’s Progress, Curtis Opera Theatre
“Soprano Elena Perroni was particularly strong as Anne Truelove, with all of that charachers vulnerabilities and underlying strength playing out in subtle ways vocally.”
Philadelphia Inquirer 2015
