Corinna Scheurle

Mezzo-Soprano

Überhaupt dominieren sehr kraftvolle Stimmen in dieser letzten Auswahl – wie auch die von Corinna Scheurle, die in der Tiefe wie in der Höhe einen vollen, warmen Ton zeigt. Ausdrucksstark ist auch die Mimik der Mezzosopranistin, mit der sie ihre Interpretation von „Enfin je suis ici“ aus Massenets „Cendrillon“ toll unterstützt.

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.

Der Tagesspiegel (Alcina, Kammeroper Schloss Rheinsberg, July 2016)

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.
