Bio

        Mezzo-Soprano, Rebecca Luttio, was raised in Seattle, Washington where she began her musical journey as a dancer with the Pacific Northwest Ballet, performing in Seattle Opera’s Nutcracker at age ten. She went on to study dance and music for eight more years and then pursued formal classical music studies at the prestigious St. Olaf College in Northfield, Minnesota. After graduating, she received a scholarship to attend the New England Conservatory in Boston where she completed her master’s degree in vocal performance and sang leading roles in every main-stage opera production. Even before graduation, Rebecca was offered a professional contract with the Chicago Opera Theater in the title role of La Tragédie de Carmen, and the same year demonstrated her acting skills in the play Cardenio with Harvard University’s renowned American Repertory Theater.

        Upon graduation, Rebecca was quickly engaged by Florida Grand Opera’s Young Artist Program where

she excelled in several main stage roles, including “Zerlina” in Don Giovanni and “Nicklausse” in Les Contes d’Hoffman. She was then personally chosen to perform for the Castleton Festival in Virginia by its artistic director, Lorin Maazel, where she was assigned “Lucretia” in The Rape of Lucretia, among other roles. She was also invited to return to the Chicago Opera Theatre to sing “Medea” in Giasone, for which she received critical praise.

      Rebecca currently lives and studies in Minneapolis where she performs regularly in concerts, oratorio and

local opera productions. As her recent video recordings demonstrate, she is now preparing to take on some of the more iconic, dramatic mezzo roles; especially those that require bel canto line and strength in the upper register. Her most recent performances in Minnesota have garnered glowing comments from local audiences, such as … “What an incredibly sumptuous and warm vocal color!” … “She possesses a superstar presence that lights up the stage!” … “Her intuitive acting, natural beauty and superlative musicality promise a bright future of leading roles in opera houses around the world.”
