Corinna Scheurle

Mezzo-Soprano

Am stärksten begeistert Corinna Scheurle in der Rolle des in Alcinas Fänge geratenen jungen Ruggiero: Stilsicher, klar und stark in der Tiefe sowie geläufig in den Koloraturen sorgt sie in den unterschiedlichsten Stimmungslagen für intensive Emotion und stattet ihren Helden auch körperlich mit jungenhaftem Charme aus.

Corinna Scheurle verfügt über einen für eine so junge Frau erstaunlich kräftigen, reifen Mezzosopran, mit ausdrucksvollem Vibrato. Mit sicherem Gespür gestaltet sie die sensiblen Texte, die Blumen und Früchte, geheimnisvolle Barken und die Augen der schönen Freundin besingen, ein duftig-zartes Gebilde reinster Poesie.
