Biography

he1

She is an artist who in a masterly way combines extremely difficult coloratura parts with extraordinary lightness and a real sense of bel canto vocal style. Joanna Wos has a sonorous intonation, spotlessly clean voice with a very wide range (ranging freely up to high F6). Impressive lightness and excellent precision allows the artist to perform even the most daring coloratura parties effortlessly while retaining the unique sound and sophisticated style of bel canto.

Laureated of many prestigious vocal competitions and festivals. Awarded first prize at the International Vocal Competition in Bilbao, multiple laureated of the Golden Masks (music critics awards). She made her debut in the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor by Gaetano Donizetti at the Grand Theatre in Lodz. The success she has achieved in her first role left no doubt that she has a unique vocal talent. This event has decided about further development of the artist’s career. After graduating from the Academy of Music in Lodz she permanently tied to working with the Grand Theatre and became its soloist. The enthusiasm of the audience and critical acclaim are an integral part of the artist’s career, her subsequent roles are accepted with appreciation. The artist enchants not only phenomenal coloratura, but also lyrical and dramatic outstanding talent.

In addition to regular co-operation in Lodz, we can also watch Joanna Wos on the scenes of the National Opera in Warsaw, Krakow Opera, the Grand Theatre in Poznan, Baltic Opera, National Philharmonic and Krakow Philharmonic.

In Aprill 2013 the Grand Theatre in Lodz staged especially for her Donizetti’s Anna Bolena. In this role the artist has once again demonstrated an unparalleled mastery of vocal and acting, which is an integral part of implementing the bel canto style.
