Ema Mitrović


Ema Mitrović is described: “Making a big impression in the secondary role of Frugola was Ema Mitrović, recently seen in MCO’s The Doctor and the Devils. Her range as a mezzo-soprano is extraordinary. Here, her Frugola, the ragpicker, riveted one’s attention with sympathetic warmth and humor, backed up with her luscious vocal portrayal.” (Marble City Opera, La Frugola (Il tabarro) Arts Knoxville) and “Mezzo-soprano Ema Mitrović laid down a plush carpet of notes, performing Ulrica’s Aria from Un ballo in maschera. The tessitura’s low end dropped into the contralto range where she voiced both authority and menace” Benefit Concert for Ukraine OperaWire 3/21/22).  Ms. Mitrović performs music across different genres, having performed 20+ operatic roles thus far, a number of solo recitals, and has enjoyed being a cross-over jazz singer, often performing programs that include both classical and standard jazz repertoire to connect to a wider audience.
