Rhoslyn Jones is an important presence on the concert and opera stages of the world. Described as a “superb singer and artistic presence,” Ms. Jones’ voice is “luscious, and her soul opens forthrightly and generously to the audience.” She has captivated the audience of the Vancouver Opera with her “unforgettably powerful voice” in her first production of Le Nozze di Figaro. As the Countess, Rhoslyn Jones imparted “a grace and dignity that prevent[ed] her from descending into the mold of the stereotypical wronged woman, and [allowed] her to become a relatable individual for a modern audience. Jones is a joy to watch and reason alone to see the show.”
In recent seasons, Ms. Jones has appeared with the San Francisco Opera as Roxane in Alfano’s Cyrano de Bergerac, and as Julia Dent in the world premiere of Glass’ Appomattox , Pacific Opera Victoria as Mimi in La Boheme , Vancouver Opera and Opera Santa Barbara as the Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro , Vancouver Opera as Tatyana in Eugene Onegin, Arizona Opera in the title role of Floyd’s Susannah, Chicago Opera Theatre as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, and Pittsburgh Opera and Arizona Opera as Musetta in La Boheme. A busy concert singer, Rhoslyn appeared as soloist in Rachmaninoff’s The Bells with the Colorado Symphony Orchestra, and with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. She also performed Morgen, a ballet set to a collection of Richard Strauss songs for soprano and orchestra with the New York City Ballet.
A native of Aldergrove, British Columbia., Ms. Jones completed her undergraduate and masters degree at the University of British Columbia and her Diploma in Opera Performance at the Curtis Institute of Music in Philadelphia. She also attended the distinguished Summer Festival at Ravinia in 2008 and was a 2004 and 2005 participant in Merola, which led to her selection as an Adler Fellow at the San Francisco Opera from 2006-2007.
