Praised for her rich voice, expansive range and appealing stage presence, Tara Erraught’s international stature has continued to grow since she stepped in on five-days’ notice learning the role of Romeo in Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi at the Bayerische Staatsoper in 2011, her performance winning worldwide acclaim. In the seasons since, she has sung a world premiere, made numerous role debuts, successfully toured North America twice and made her US opera debut.
During the first half of the 2015-16 season Ms. Erraught tours Ireland, the UK and the U.S. in recital: at Dublin’s National Concert Hall, debuts on the acclaimed Music for Galway Series and in recital at the Wexford Festival, a return to London’s Wigmore Hall and series debut recitals not only at Celebrity Series of Boston but also at Carnegie Hall, Weill Hall in the United States.

Her voice is rich with dark glints and bright promise and she offered some of the best singing of the evening.” –The Guardian, UK,May 2014), as well as  Carlotta in Die Schweigsame Frau, Op. 80, Christa in The Makropulos Affair, Prince Orlovsky in Die Fledermaus, Cherubino in Le Nozze di Figaro, and Hansel in Hansel und Gretel with the Bayerische Staatsoper.

In spring 2013, the Bavarian government bestowed upon Ms. Erraught the prestigious Pro meritis scientiae et litterarum in recognition for outstanding contribution to the arts. She is only the fifth musician, and the youngest recipient, to be honored with the annual award since its inception in 2000. In March of 2010 Ms. Erraught was the recipient of Dublin’s National Concert Hall’s Rising Star Award. Other honors include First Prize in the Jakub Pustina International Singing Competition in the Czech Republic, along with the Zdar nad Sazavou Audience Prize in 2008.
