Praised for her “ravishing voice” and “compelling” stage presence [San Diego Story], Turkish-American soprano Öznur Tülüoglu is establishing herself as a young, rising artist “destined for bigger things,” [San Diego Tribune].
Öznur began the 2022/2023 season making her international debut performing the role of Sandrina in a co-production of La finta giardiniera with Opera Neo and The Hungarian State Opera. Afterwards, she joined Opera Neo as an Apprentice Artist in their San Diego summer festival.
Öznur made her house debut with Annapolis Opera in their production of Le nozze di Figaro as Barbarina. This upcoming summer, she will return to Opera Neo as an Apprentice Artist performing the role of Aspasia in Mitridate.
"TÜLÜOĞLU'S RAVISHING VOICE NEVER FALTERED...
Her compelling stage presence was complicated by Eszter Lázár’s hand-jiving choreography and director András Almási-Tóth’s conception of Violante as a vampire. She took it all in stride . . . I prefer thinking about Öznur Tülüoglu, who hopefully is destined for bigger things."
-San Diego Tribune
"In Opera Neo’s Budapest co-production with the Hungarian State Opera of Mozart’s La finta giardiniera, Öznur Tülüoglu sang a winning Sandrina. Her deeply felt “Caro nome” on Sunday proved unusually persuasive because she navigated Verdi’s vocal complexities with a level of assurance that allowed Gilda’s emotional state to override the composer’s flamboyant writing."
