Press Release (ePRNews.com) - NEW YORK - Jan 22, 2017 - The first impression of Maariana Vikse is that she is somewhat the contrarian of one’s image of an opera singer. Her blonde hair, blue eyes and wonderful smile are reminiscent of the Beach Boys Surfer Girl image; yet her powerful sultry melodic tone lingers in your senses like no other musical experience. Maariana is the new image for today’s operatic performer and her personality mesmerizes you to listen to her words about opera, music, drama, love, passion, and life.
She has a keen sense of her God-given talent and her personality an energy ignites a smile. She has chosen to take to the stage as a mentor, opera guide, educator, informer—she simply wants to remove the arrogance of opera and bring it home to younger generations to appreciate the simplicity of a story told with music no different than the storytelling one finds in country music or the addictive lyrics of Usher or even the rant of hip hop rap music—music tells a story—opera was its beginning.
“I evolved to appreciate opera and it consumed me—it led me to a place of expression and to share it on stage, the glimmer in someone’s eyes from the audience, the emotion it evokes in their response as we perform, it gives me my purpose. And now, I would love to be that medium to the younger generations to appreciate this beautiful form of music”, says Maariana.
“…A lovely performance as Melissa”, wrote Allan Kozinn of the The New York Times. Wherever she appears, this American Mezzo-Soprano, Maariana garners compliments in each performance— be it the Festival Opera Company in Tolentino Italy or her presence throughout the New York opera performance centers as The Mann Center, City Center, Wolf Trap, and a recent trip to Abu Dhabi to perform for the French Ambassador.
Maariana will launch her campaign to “Ignite Young America to Opera” with appearances on TV shows, online blogging, speaking engagements, workshops, seminars, and opening her heart to colleges and universities to share this new discovery of Opera in a technically driven world.
