Soraya Mafi

Acclaimed Soprano in Irvine

Posted 9 Mar 2019

Promising young soprano Soraya Mafi (pictured) and renowned Scottish pianist Andrew Johnston are giving a recital of songs and arias as part of the Townhouse recital series in Irvine, co-hosted by Ayrshire Opera Experience. The recital series, launched last year in the restored Townhouse, has been so successful that funding has been obtained from Enterprise Music Scotland to continue the series.

Soraya Mafi is clearly a singer to watch. Winner of the Susan Chilcott Award 2016, the Lancashire-born soprano makes debuts in 2018/19 with Seattle Opera (Flora, The Turn of the Screw), Opéra national du Rhin, Opéra National de Lorraine and Opéra Royal Versailles (Cintia, La Divisione del Mondo). Soraya then returns to Grange Park Opera to make her role début as Gretel, Hansel and Gretel
