NATALIA RUBIŚ

Soprano

Biography

Soprano Natalia Rubiś has been praised by the critic of the German magazine Merker for her performance as Calisto in Handel’s Giove in Argo at the Händel-Festspiele: “Natalia Rubiś, interpreting the role of Calisto, shows successfully how a solid technique is beneficial in the expression of singing: with her brightly timbred, slim soprano, she highlighted her staccati, dotted notes and elegant phrasing. In the third act, she fills her aria with a fine warmth.”

In the summer of 2019, Ms. Rubiś sang Merab in Handel’s Saul with Czech Ensemble Baroque at Music Festival Znojmo in the Czech Republic; the title role of Moniuszko’s Halka with Capella Cracoviensis; Basia in Stefani’s Krakowiacy i górale with Collegium 1704; and a recital at the Świdnica Bach Festival in Poland. Among her engagements in the 2019-20 season are Micäela in Carmen with Wrocław Opera, Marzelline in Fidelio and Szymanowski’s Stabat Mater in a return to the Beethoven Easter Festival in Warsaw; a reprise of Halka with Capella Cracoviensis in Prague and with the Warsaw Chamber Opera; and Penderecki’s Credo under the baton of the composer himself, and concerts with Philharmonic of Wit, Torun Symphony Orchestra, and West Side Sinfonietta in Poland.

In the 2018-19 season, Ms. Rubiś sang the role of Cristallina in Salieri’s La fiera di Venezia with L’arte del mondo, which she also recorded for Sony; the world premiere of David Chesky’s Letter to a Composer for Krzysztof Penderecki’s birthday with Sinfonietta Cracovia; the title role of Halka and Marguerite in Faust with Wrocław Opera; Kilar’s Missa Pro Pace with the Chicago Philharmonic for the centennial celebration of Polish Independence; Merab in Saul with Czech Ensemble Baroque. In the 2017-18 season, she sang Euridice and Musica in Monteverdi’s Orfeo with L’arte del mondo in Düsseldorf; Fiordiligi in Cosí fan tutte at the Świdnica Bach Festival; Mozart’s Requiem with Sinfonia Varsovia in Warsaw; and Moniuszko’s The Phantoms with the Warsaw Philharmonic at the Beethoven Easter Festival.

Ms. Rubiś recently filmed her first DVD of Donizetti’s Requiem with Collegium 1704, with Václav Luks conducting (Fryderyk Chopin Institute Records). Other recent engagements include Bach cantatas with Collegium 1704, and Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Despina in Cosí fan tutte, and Sa Femme in Le pauvre matelot with Yale Opera.

Ms. Rubiś made her international debut in Giove in Argo at the Händel-Festspiele in Halle, Germany. She has since been invited to perform other baroque operas, including Romilda in Xerxes and Sivene in Le Cinesi in Dresden and Bad Lauchstädt. In Poland, Ms Rubiś sang in the Polish premiere of Elliot Carter’s Tempo e tempi at the Nostalgia Festival, was soloist in Fauré’s Requiem, and recorded a CD of operetta love duets for DUX.

Ms. Rubiś is a recent winner of the Marcello Giordani competition in Italy. She earned a Master of Musical
Arts in Opera from the Yale School of Music, where she studied with Doris Yarick Cross. She holds a Master
of Music in Oratorio and a Bachelor of Music in Voice from the Wrocław Music Academy.

Reviews

Natalia Rubis gefällt als Calisto mit leuchtenden Koloraturen, die sich vor allem im zweiten Akt in der aus der Oper Alcina übernommenen Arie ”Tornami vagheggiar” entfalten können. Wenn sie im dritten Akt mit ihrem Schicksal hadert, geht Rubis’ Interpretation darstellerisch und stimmlich unter die Haut.

Erfolgreicher zeigt Natalia Rubiś als Einspringerin in der Partie der Callisto, wie solide Technik dem Ausdruck des Singens zuträglich ist: Mit ihrem hell timbrierten, schlanken Sopran lässt sie Staccati, punktierte Noten und elegante Figuren keck abspringen; erfüllt ihre Klagearie im dritten Akt mit feiner Wärme.
– Werner Häußner/ Online Merker
