Called “sensitive and impassioned” by Opera News, Grammy-recognized mezzo-soprano Felicia Gavilanes has performed with companies such as Boston Lyric Opera, Boston Modern Orchestra Project, Odyssey Opera, Teatro Lírico Nacional de Cuba, the Tallahassee Symphony Orchestra, and the Orquesta Sinfónica del Conservatorio Nacional de Música of the Dominican Republic. A dual citizen of the U.S. and Italy, Felicia completed her Bachelor of Arts in Italian Literature and Music from Dartmouth College, her Master of Music with Honors from the New England Conservatory, and earned her Doctorate from Florida State University with the thesis “Interpreting Gabriele d’Annunzio,” a song companion with original translations and analyses of fifty song settings of d’Annunzio’s poetry. Felicia will next be heard on a solo vocal album of Italian art songs entitled La Sera and next seen onstage as Mrs. Clemm in The Voyage of Edgar Allan Poe with Boston Modern Orchestra Project.
