Biography

Hailed as a “true Puccini lyric soprano” by Opera News, Italian American soprano, Anna Mandina, is quickly making a name for herself in the opera world. Ms. Mandina recently performed the role of Mimì in Sarasota Opera’s production of Puccini’s La bohème to great acclaim. Anna made her mainstage debut with Sarasota singing 13 performances of Liù in the company’s Diamond Anniversary production of Turandot. Mandina was hailed as “impressive” and “heart-rending” as Liù by Opera News, having conveyed “all that is sweet and good with a robust soprano voice that can float a high B-flat as she sung of Calaf’s smile.”

Besides the Puccini heroines, Ms. Mandina’s signature roles include Countess Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro), Violetta Valéry (La traviata), Susannah Polk (Susannah), Fiordiligi (Così fan tutte), and Hanna Glawari (The Merry Widow).

Anna’s training has included past resident artist apprenticeships with Seagle Music Colony, Houston Grand Opera Young Artist Vocal Academy, Opera Company of Middlebury, Opera Maine, Missouri Symphony, and Sarasota Opera. Ms. Mandina holds a Bachelor of Music degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia, and a Master of Music degree from The Boston Conservatory.

Upcoming in February and March of 2021, Ms. Mandina will be shifting gears to perform the comedic role of Serpina in Pergolesi’s La serva padrona. Anna is eternally grateful to companies like Sarasota Opera who are finding safe and innovative ways for live performing to continue during these unprecedented times.
"It is the tender heart of Anna Mandina’s Liù that rises above. She conveys all that is sweet and good with a robust soprano voice that can float a high B-flat as she sung of Calaf’s smile. This is a role that surpasses Turandot in terms of moving our hearts. Liu represents pure unselfish love, and Mandina carries this well to the bitter end.”
