GENVAS 2022 Icon of the Arts Award Honoree, Diana Soviero, Legendary Operatic Singing Actor 

In this “Conversation with the Artist” we honor Diana Soviero, Legendary Operatic Singing Actor and bestow upon her the 2022 GENVAS Icon of the Arts Award. In this intimate setting you patrons will enjoy an interactive conversation with Ms. Soviero and her husband Bernard Uzan moderated by our Artistic Director, William Riddle. The evening features rare videos, photos, and audios taken over Soviero’s lifetime and career. 

Diana Soviero is one of the most recognized American opera singers of the twentieth century. More than merely a vocalist, Ms. Soviero was a singing actress who lived her roles intensely on the stage in a career spanning over 40 years.  She created a gallery of unforgettable operatic portraits in performances at leading international opera houses including The Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, Royal Opera House in Covent Garden, Vienna Staatsoper, Opéra national de Paris, Opéra de Paris Bastille, Hamburg Staatsoper, Bayerische Staatsoper in Munich, Chicago Lyric Opera, Los Angeles Opera, Houston Grand Opera, and San Francisco Opera. In the last decade, Ms. Soviero has dedicated herself to teaching singers with the same passion that characterized her singing and acting career. In addition to her large private vocal studio in New York City, she is a member of the voice faculty at the Mannes School of Music and gives masterclasses across the country.
