We are delighted to announce that soprano Nika Gorič has moved on successfully to Maestro Arts where she will be managed by Thomas Hull (email@example.com) and Christian White (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Slovenian soprano Nika Gorič studied at the Ballet and Music School in Maribor, Kunstuniversität Graz, and the Royal Academy of Music where she completed her studies with Lillian Watson and Jonathan Papp, receiving The Queen’s Commendation for Excellence. She made her international debut as part of the 2016 Salzburg Festival’s Young Singers Project, playing Titania in Elena Tzavara’s production of The Fairy Queen on themes after Purcell, leading to the festival nominating her for the Stella Maris International Vocal Competition where she was awarded an appearance at Vienna’s Musikverein. Over the last year Nika performed the roles of Norina in Don Pasquale with Slovene National Opera and Eurydice in Orpheé aux enfers, Polly Peachum in Die Dreigroschenoper and Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier with Royal Academy Opera. She gave recitals at Wigmore Hall, took part in a staged production of Handel’s Messiah with Opéra National de Bordeaux and was a member of the Solti Accademia. Nika was selected by YCAT in May 2016.
She is grateful for awards from the Sir Charles Mackerras Opera Scholarship, the Independent Opera Voice Scholarship, the Josephine Baker Trust and the Slovenian Ministry of Culture.
