Soprano ERIN HANNON began her career in her hometown of Virginia Beach, VA, taking on roles with the Virginia Musical Theater and Virginia Opera. She continued to perform with the Virginia Opera, singing the role of Papagena in Mozart’s Die Zauberflote in Rome, Italy while pursuing a degree in music performance. She was invited to Tokyo, Japan to record Kakehashi: That We Might Live, a 70-minute work commemorating the sacrifices of World War II in the Pacific by composer Stephen Melillo.
Ms. Hannon continued her studies at The Boston Conservatory where she received a Masters of Music in Opera Performance and is currently working on a Doctorate of Music at the University of Kentucky. She has since performed many roles, in both the United States and Europe and, most recently, was a featured soloist in Vocal Artists Management Services' Artist Showcase concert at the National Opera Center in New York.
This exciting artist has performed concerts at the Italian and French Embassies, premiered the role of Betsy Todd in the new American opera Mary Todd and will be singing the role of Musetta in La Boheme this spring.
Other portrayals include Elizabeth Proctor in Ward’s The Crucible, Mademoiselle Silberklang in Der Schauspieldirektor, Lucy in Jekyll and Hyde, The Wardrobe in Beauty and the Beast Broadway, Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Mimi in La Boheme, Arabella in Arabella, Violetta in La Traviata and Magda in La Rondine.
“As Don Giovanni’s former lover Donna Elvira, soprano Erin Hannon sang with force and intelligence.”
“The power was electrifying – one could see the audience members held with rapt attention. Ms. Hannon most likely made many fans tonight with her fine work.”
- New York Concert Review
“Erin Hannon brought an air of poise and dignity to the role [of Donna Elvira]. Her strong voice gave her a commanding presence and, as a character, she was almost as tenacious as Don Giovanni, himself.”
