Opera

“There is no doubt who the stars of the show were: Ilanna Starr as Nero with perfect vocal efficiency and [a] formidable demeanor.”

<<“Les vainqueurs du spectacle tombent sous le sens : Ilanna Starr en Néron d’une efficacité vocale parafaite et d’un abattage formidable […]”>>

Passionate about exploring diverse human experiences through art music, Ilanna has curated and performed collaborative recitals centered around the voices of women, domestic violence, relationship communication styles, and the resilience of Jewish culture during the Holocaust and throughout the 20th century. She holds degrees from Vanderbilt University, Northwestern University, and McGill University.

A lover of dogs and baroque rage arias, Ilanna digs singing from her heart and laughing from her belly (and vice versa).
