Nell Snaidas

NELL SNAIDAS (Director) is an American-Uruguayan GRAMMY-nominated soprano, whose specialization in the Early Music of Latin America and Spain, and Historical Gesture, has led her to perform, curate and direct throughout the Americas and Europe. Her productions of the first opera ever performed in the Americas, La Púrpura de la Rosa by Tomás Torrejón y Velazco (1701, Peru) have been seen at the University of Wisconsin-Madison, the Jacobs School of Music-Indiana University. Last season she directed and choreographed Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice at NYU’s prestigious Steinhardt School of the Arts and Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas at Queens College: Aaron Copeland School of Music. As a performer, she has been a soloist with the LA Phil, created the role of Princess Olga in Mattheson’s Boris Goudenow with the Boston Early Music Festival at Tanglewood and starred internationally as Christine in The Phantom of the Opera. This season she will be singing at Carnegie recital hall alongside this evening’s Adonis, Jennifer Ellis Kampani, with the group El Mundo, Richard Savino director, in a program of baroque music from the archives of the Guatemala Cathedral. Recent appearances include international performances as soprano soloist in the first all-Spanish Handel's Mesías: Messiah for a New World with Bach Collegium San Diego. Nell is also the co-Artistic Director of GEMAS: Early Music of the Americas. This concert series in NYC, devoted to the Early Music and Performers of Latin America and Canada, is a project of the Americas Society and GEMS (The Gotham Early Music Scene). www.nellsnaidas.com
