Even if Elena Mosuc is considered first and foremost a bel canto specialist and a performer of various Mozart heroines for dramatic coloratura soprano, it should be noted that Giuseppe Verdi´s stage works have always been an integral part of her repertoire and will in the future become an even more prominent part of it. Since Maria Callas, these roles are sung with heavier and primarily dramatic voices. In our times this is considered common property. Nevertheless, one should always keep in mind, that these roles - in terms of requirements and stylistics - can´t be separated from the epoch of bel canto and, even in Verdi's time without any exception, sung by leading bel canto prima donnas or explicitly composed for this kind of voice. Elena Mosuc started her brilliant international career at the Zurich Opera House. Guest appearances have taken place at the most important houses and festivals in the world (including the opera houses of Amsterdam, Barcelona, Berlin, Hamburg, Teatro alla Scala Milan, Munich, Vienna, Salzburg, Paris, London, Helsinki, Rome, Venice, Verona) as well as in the USA to the MET, and to Japan, China and Korea.
