dDonita Volkwijn has been seen recently in major European cities performing the role of Bess for a touring production of Gershwin’s PORGY AND BESS.  The role has lead to two important company debuts; Seattle Opera in 2011 and Tulsa Opera in 2007.  She also performed the role of Micaela CARMEN with Tulsa Opera that year and again the following season with Hawaii Opera Theatre.  No stranger to the music of Puccini, she has also performed Mimi LA BOHÈME  with San Francisco Opera, Opera Memphis and DiCapo Opera Theatre, Anna LE VILLI with DiCaop Opera Theatre as well as her first Musetta LA BOHÈME with Tulsa Opera.  Ms. Volkwijn took part in Mezzo Competition (sponsored by the French television station Mezzo) and as one of the winners, she was selected to sing the part of the Condemned Female in David Alagna’s LE DERNIER JOUR D’UN CONDAMNE which was performed in Debrecen and Szeged, Hungary.  Last season Ms. Volkwijn sang Perneatha in the workshop of THE LONG WALK with American Lyric Theater.
