Nell Snaidas, soprano

NellSnaidas 068 ppc

Nell Snaidas has been praised by the New York Times for her “beautiful soprano voice, superb sense of line” and “vocally ravishing” performances. Her voice has also been described as “remarkably pure with glints of rich sensuality” (Vancouver Sun); and she has been called “a model of luminous timbre and emotional intensity” (Cleveland Plain Dealer). Specialization in Italian and Spanish Baroque music has since taken her all over Europe, North and Latin America. Operatic performances include her European debut in Alessandro Scarlatti’s Gli Equivoci nel Sembiante at the Teatro Garibaldi in Palermo, Sicily, as well as creating the role "Princess Olga" in the world-premiere of the Boston Early Music Festival’s production of Boris Goudenow in Boston and Tanglewood. She has been a featured soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Apollo’s Fire, The Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Tragicomedia, Seattle Baroque, Concert Royal, Sinfonia NY and Tempesta di Mare. Nell has recorded for Sony Classical, Dorian, Koch International and Naxos and was featured on CBC radio as one of the leading interpreters of Spanish Renaissance and Sephardic song.
