Soprano Nell Snaidas & Aeris | 49th Indianapolis Early Music Festival
Nell Snaidas & Aeris
Nell Snaidas has been praised by the New York Times for her "beautiful soprano voice, melting passion" and "vocally ravishing" performances.
She began her career singing leading roles in zarzuelas at New York City's Repertorio Español. Specialization in Italian and Spanish Baroque music has since taken her all over Europe, North and Latin America. Operatic performances include her European debut in Alessandro Scarlatti's Gli Equivoci nel Sembiante at the Teatro Garibaldi in Palermo, Sicily as well as creating the role "Princess Olga" in the world-premiere of the Boston Early Music Festival's production of Matheson's opera Boris Goudenow in Boston and Tanglewood.
She has been a featured soloist with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, Apollo's Fire, The Boston Early Music Festival Orchestra, Tragicomedia, Seattle Baroque, The Dallas Bach Society, and Ex Umbris. Nell starred internationally as "Christine" in The Phantom of the Opera, is heard in Mel Brooks' movie-musical The Producers, and was a soloist in the Grammy-nominated Broadway cast album Hair. She also collaborated with Alicia Keys in the musical arrangement and Italian translation of her song "Superwoman" for Kathleen Battle for the grand finale of the 2008 America Music Awards.
She has recorded for Sony Classical, Dorian, Koch International and Naxos and was featured on CBC radio as one of the leading interpreters of Spanish Renaissance and Sephardic song.
