Hill Auditorium

Few emerging artists have captured the attention of the international opera public as the Irish-born mezzo-soprano Tara Erraught. A member of the Bavarian State Opera ensemble, she won widespread acclaim in February 2011, jumping in on short notice for an ailing colleague to perform Romeo in a new production of Bellini’s I Capuleti e i Montecchi. In 2013, her Vienna State Opera debut left critics elated and audiences stunned. A UMS debut.
