Praised for her “ravishing voice” and “compelling stage presence” [San Diego Story], Turkish-American soprano Öznur Tülüoğlu is establishing herself as a young, rising artist “destined for bigger things,” [San Diego Tribune].
Öznur’s current season showcases her versatility with roles such as Gilda at Mobile Opera, Young Alyce (Glory Denied) at Annapolis Opera, Aspasia (Mitridate) at Opera Neo, and Barbarina (Le Nozze di Figaro) at Annapolis Opera. Additionally, she performed at Washington National Opera to premiere the role of The Pigeon in Carlos Simon's new children’s operetta, Don't Let the Pigeon Sing Up Late! alongside Renée Fleming and Mo Willems.
Öznur will join Chautauqua Opera as an Apprentice Artist next summer in a triple bill, taking on the roles of Young Woman in A.E Reverie, Camila in Pepito, and Sandman in Hansel and Gretel. She will also appear as the Soprano Soloist in Beethoven's 9th Symphony with the Chautauqua Symphony.
"ÖZNUR TÜLÜOĞLU DAZZLED AS ASPASIA WITH HER SUPPLE SOPRANO AND MAGNETIC STAGE PRESENCE..
Her phrasing and breath control of the most difficult passages seemed effortless, and her high notes were spine-chilling."
