The renowned American soprano returned last season to Washington National Opera (Desdemona/Otello) followed by performances at Palm Beach Opera (Liù/Turandot) and the Philadelphia Orchestra (Verdi Requiem). With Seattle Opera, she portrayed Leonora/Il trovatore and then debuted with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in Verdi’s Requiem, which she has also sung with the major orchestras of Chicago, Los Angeles, Calgary, Columbus, and Albany. Crocetto’s eminence in Verdi has been confirmed by successes in Il trovatore (Bordeaux, Verona, Frankfurt), Otello (Frankfurt, Venice, also on the Teatro La Fenice’s tour of Japan), Luisa Miller (San Francisco, Tel Aviv), Aida (San Francisco, Seattle), and Falstaff (Frankfurt). She has also starred in bel canto repertoire, such as Maometto II (Santa Fe Opera), L’assedio di Calais (Glimmerglass Festival, U.S. premiere), Semiramide (Opéra National de Bordeaux) and Norma (North Carolina Opera). Among her successes in concert has been Mahler’s Symphony No. 8, notably with the Los Angeles Philharmonic and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Crocetto initially earned recognition as a Grand Finals winner in the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, prior to representing the U.S. at the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition.
