Gianna Cañete Gallo soprano
The Belgo-Uruguayan soprano Gianna Cañete Gallo was born to two opera singers. She studied at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels, at the "Luigi Cherubini" Conservatory in Florence and, thanks to an International Rotary grant, at the Hochschule for Musik in Nuremberg. “Her extraordinary sensibility of interpretation allied to her beautiful, full, resonant voice” (El País) has taken her to the Netherlands, Belgium, Italy, Germany and South America, singing as a soloist in both opera and oratorio, for many international festivals.
The soprano leggero has performed at the Opéra Royal de Wallonie, the Théâtre royal du Parc, the Théâtre des Martyrs in Brussels, the Offenbach Festival at Etretat, the Theatru Astra in Malta and at the Göggingen Parktheater in Germany singing the roles of Dragonette (Dragonette), Nicole (La Permission de dix heures), Suor Genovieffa (Suor Angelica), Adèle (Die Fledermaus), Ännchen (Der Freischütz), Juan (Don Quichotte), Papagena and Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Despina (Così fan tutte), Barbarina (Le Nozze di Figaro) and Konstanze (Die Entführung aus dem Serail).
Gianna was a finalist at the competition "Les Nouveaux Talents de l'Art lyrique 2016", where she also received the audience Prize. In 2019 she won the 1st prize at the national operetta competition "Brussel Operettetheater". In masterclasses, she has worked with Lisette Oropesa, Laura Claycomb, José Van Dam, Nadine Denize, Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Jennifer Larmore and Andreas Scholl.
