Mezzo-soprano Maya Gour, who has both an Israeli and a Portuguese background, completed her musical education at the Mannes School of Music in New York City. As a first-year member of Dutch National Opera Studio, she has already worked on several projects in the season 2020/2021, including various recitals, two radio broadcastings for NPO Radio4 and the livestream of Donizetti Queens in Concert, which was streamed in May 2021 and marked Maya’s debut with Dutch National Opera.
In the season 2021/2022 Maya will start her second year with Dutch National Opera Studio and perform the role of the third Zofe in the season opener Der Zwerg, under the direction of Lorenzo Viotti. Besides that she will take on the roles of Flora in La traviata and page der Herodias in Salome.
“In my second year I am hoping to be able to perform more often to a live audience and to be able to use the tools I have learn last year in the DNO Studio. I am very excited for hopefully a season with live opera performances again!”
