Considered one of her signature roles, Ms Di Giorgio performed in November 2019 Verdi Requiem at the Bruckenerhaus Linz. Among previous interpretations: the Concert series that took place in May 2018 which included the Philharmonie de Paris, the Versailles Festival, the La Seine Musicale Paris with the Orchestre National d’Ile-de-France under the baton of M° Enrique Mazzola and at the Aachen Cathedral, in Freiburg and in Calabria: her great success was highly celebrated as “ a tragedienne, with a rich register capable of expressing wadded deep harmonic tones and even subterranean groans as well as high shimmering notes . Supported by the immense sound palette of the orchestra, she embraces the pulpit and embodies the nobility as well as the profound af fliction of the text.
Her broad experience in interpretation of the verdian operatic roles, shows throughout this dramatic piece in the beautifully guided lines.” In 2018/2019 Ms Di Giorgio sang her second production of Macbeth (Theater Aachen and Stadtstheater Cottbus, Germany) as Lady Macbeth. Opera Magazine describes her as “a voice with impressive top notes (including a high D flat) which makes for a sensuous and vibrant Lady Macbeth” . In the cavatina “ Vieni t’affretta…” she places the large tone jumps with such vocal perfection, that no break between high and low notes is audible. Every note she sings is intense with feelings, high notes are brilliant and clear in fortissimo and her toying in the low register, with her dusky voice, always pays off.” Ms Di Giorgio was further to be heard in Trittico Puccini at Theater Bonn, Aida at the National Theater of Belgrade and at the Opera Craiova, Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana, Carmen (she has been depicted by Opernglas as “an absolutely authentic Carmen” and praised by Grenzecho Net for her “gripping depiction of all erotic Nuances, loose art of seduction with a full-bodied opulent voice, elegant lightness and beautiful legato singing”).
