The Uruguayan soprano will sing four performances of Nabucco at the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino with Plácido Domingo in the eponymous role.

On October 4, 2020 María José Siri will debut the role of Abigaille in Nabucco at the Teatro del Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, in a production by Leo Muscato and under the musical direction of Maestro Paolo Carignani. She will share the stage with Plácido Domingo in the title role, Alexander Vinogradov as Zaccaria, Fabio Sartori as Ismaele and Caterina Piva as Fenena.

“For me Abigaille is a bel-canto part, and a logical development from roles like Odabella in Attila, Lucrezia Contarini in I due Foscari and Norma, which I’ve been singing with a lot of pleasure for many years”, states the Uruguayan born, Italian naturalized soprano. “Abigaille is a warrior, and it is a challenging role which includes demanding interval jumps and passage work. But at least as important is her very sensitive, vulnerable side, which is also being reflected in the music by the many beautiful legato lines and piani that Verdi wrote for the part. I really cannot wait to sing this exciting role for the first time at the Teatro del Maggio with this amazing team!”

With this debut María José Siri will have 13 titles by the Swan of Busseto in her wide repertoire, which includes the title roles of Aida and La traviata, Odabella in Attila, Lucrezia Contarini in I due Foscari, Leonora in Il trovatore and La forza del destino, Amelia in Simon Boccanegra and Un ballo in maschera, Elisabetta in the French and Italian version of Don Carlo as well as Desdemona in Otello. She also sang Verdi's Messa da Requiem with many of the world's leading orchestras. In a Puccini role, she inaugurated the 2016/2017 season of the Teatro alla Scala as Cio-Cio-San in the original version of Madama Butterfly.
