Album Notes
Ronit Widmann - Levy, Soprano

Ronit Widmann - Levy's career has taken her around the world, where she sang in
opera houses and festivals in San Francisco, Chicago, Washington, Cincinnati, Kentucky,
Berlin, Munich, London, and Jerusalem. She sang at the Ravinia Festival in Chicago, the
Bath and Dartington Festivals in England and at the Yudiche Cultur Tage in Berlin as
well as at the America Haus Concert Series in Munich.
Ronit is world famous for her interpretation of Ladino romance. Ronit's interpretation of Arnold Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire has won praise and she has
been invited to perform the piece in Europe and the U.S.A.

Her repertoire includes amongst other roles: Violetta, Constanza, Madam Butterfly,Michaela, Mimi, and
Liu. Critics consistently enjoy Ronit's ability to sing with compelling conviction and
warmth with a voice whose naturally extensive range shows "fine-spun altitudes"

The Eugene register-Guard arts critic in January 2004 described Ronit's role as Michaela
as follows: "One of the most impressive artists was Ronit Widmann- -Levy
playing...Michaela, the sweet innocent country girl...Widmann -Levy, made her two
arias memorable. Her voice has a weighty tone, and she uses it with solid technique."

This fall, Ronit begins a concert tour in Europe and the U.S with her New CD Como la Rosa.
