Biografía

"The soprano Carmen Solís has a powerful voice and stage presence. Her totally refined technique converted her into musical, exquisite resonance..."

Opera World

Carmen Solis soprano

Carmen began her singing classes with the soprano María Coronado Herrera in her native city of Badajoz, Spain and choral music with Carmelo Solís. She perfected her training with Teresa de Berganza, Ricardo Requejo, or Kevin Smith among others.

She won numerous awards and was a finalist in important international European competitions (Operalia, Francisco Viñas, Manuel Ausensi, Logroño Competition, Alfredo Catalani de Lucca Foundation, Pedro Bote, Villa de Abarán, New Voices of Seville, José A. Alegría) and began her operatic and concert career in France (Théâtre Chatelet de Paris, Royan, Sant Genís), Canada (Quebec Opera), Chile, Germany, Italy, Portugal as well as in leading venues and festivals in Spain with such renowned accompanists as Ricardo Estrada or Rubén Fernández Aguirre.

The highlights of 2018 were Tosca in the Ephesus Theater (Turkey) together with the Orchestra and Choir of the Izmir Opera, conducted by Alberto Veronesi, and the leading role in the recovery of María del Pilar by Gerónimo Giménez, performed in the Zarzuela Theater in Madrid.

Among her most important commitments for 2019 are the debut of Liú (Turandot) in the Auditori of Barcelona with the OBC, Nedda (Pagliacci) in the Comunale Theater in Bologna, Italy, as well as the recording of chamber songs by Giuseppe Verdi together with the pianist Rubén Fernández Aguirre for the IBS Classical label.

Carmen Solís leads in Madame Butterfly with the Kingdom of Aragón Orquestra

I didn't intend to write a review of the Madame Butterfly performance... since I was invited by a friend and not accredited. But at the end... I felt obliged to evaluate the extraordinary work of a soprano in one of the most compromising and difficult roles in opera. Carmen Solís gave a lesson in song in the role of Cio-Cio-San. From the first, the beauty of tone was ascertained and increased as the work progressed. Her voice is expressive, well rendered, and fills the hall above the orquestra... She uses a broad palette of shades and degrees which express her moods, always confident in pitch, especially in beautiful high notes, emotionally broad and forlorn... Aside from the vocal aspect, her esteemed performance as an actress must also be noted and is again with total surrender...

Plateamagazine.com Javier del Olivo 18/6/19

A fantastic concert to close the season

...And above all, the enthusiastic applause of the evening for Carmen Solís as Liù, the Calaf's slave secretly in love with him, who totally surprised the audience with an exhaustive control of the character, the scene and the feeling (obviously aside from the vocal aspect where she clearly surpassed all her fellow singers). Brava!...

REQUIEM: VERDI, JAÉN

Carmen Solis soprano

The soprano Carmen Solís has a powerful voice and stage presence. Her technique, totally refined, converted her into musical, exquisite resonance.Her spianato was splendid. Her fiato was overwhelming with notes left in the air with no intention of ever dissolving. The color of her voice, shifting as intended, generous in the inflections, never lost the point of authenticity, we always knew that she and only she was singing. Extraordinary. The volume that Verdi demanded of sopranos seems to have been made for Carmen Solís who even at the highest point of the performance showed no sign of fatigue.The sound of her lower notes and the discrete brilliance of the high notes made the spectator participate in her situations, enchantments, miseries and then move to despair, consternation of death, paroxysm. Can anyone still doubt about the "humanity" of her performance? Those with ears, listen...

JUAN JOSÉ en Madrid

"Carmen Solís, debuting in the Zarzuela, was precise in a very vocally risky role and showed great confidencein her stage performance..."

La Vanguardia, Concha Barrigós

"Lyric soprano with a very beautiful voice...a dramatic capacity which she relayed by playing the polyhedral side of her character: flirtation, sensuality, ambition, a certain tenderness and a lack of sensitivity towards the overwhelming passion of the two men that cross in her life. An actress and a singer..."

Opera World

"Carmen Solís has the voice of a spinto soprano which Rosa demands, and a beautiful and homogeneous instrumental experience. This young singer, who also adds temperament and musicality at difficult moments, easily overcomes any difficulty."

El Arte de la Fuga, Fernando Fraga

PAGLIACCI (NEDDA) en Santiago de Chile

"Carmen Solís sang a marvellous Nedda, attentive to the details of the score (especially in the famous "Balatella") and won over with her rich theatrical play."

El Mercurio, Juan Antonio Muñoz H.

MADAMA BUTTERFLY en Santiago de Chile

"The soloists were headed by the Spanish soprano Carmen Solís, who fully played the character of Butterfly with all the appropriate female Japanese aptitudes, such as her manner of walking, of sitting, holding her hands, etc. to which was added her beautiful and powerful voice..."

visionescriticas.cl, Gilberto Ponce

MADAMA BUTTERFLY en Gijón

"Carmen Solís, overwhelming, performed a moving Butterfly, gentle but with dramatic and above all, musical strength...especially outstanding in the second and third act where she gave the character all of her tragic profile. She was the great champion of the evening and the audience already burst into applause after her performance of the aria "Un bel vi vedremo"."
