Ms. Cucinotta’s 19/20 season includes Countess Almaviva in Le Nozze Di Figaro with Opera Ithaca, Josephine in HMS Pinafore with Knoxville Opera, returning to Indianapolis Opera as Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni and joining the Jackson Symphony Orchestra for Mahler’s 3rd Symphony.

The 2018/19 season included appearances as Musetta in La Bohème with Indianapolis Opera, Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni with Opera Ithaca, Countess in ¡Figaro! 90210 with Morningside Opera, Josephine in HMS Pinafore at Knoxville Opera, Erste Dame in Die Zauberflöte at Opera Tampa, Die Fledermaus with Amarillo and Knoxville Opera, Nina in The Firefly with Ohio Light Opera and Nedda in Pagliacci with Opera in the Heights where D.L Groover of the Houston Press noted:

“Cucinotta’s fiery soprano opened up with a blistering top, square on, raising goose bumps in the best possible way.”

Previous 2017/18 engagements include concerts with Baltimore Concert Opera, and First Coast Opera, Asheville Lyric Opera debut as Aldonza in Man of La Mancha, and Indianapolis Opera in Johnathan Dove’s Mansfield Park. She also sang the title role in Evangeline with the Longfellow Chorus and recorded her first Mimì in La Bohème with Reclamation Opera, and jumped in for Rachel Peters’s Wild Beasts with Center for Contemporary Opera where Richard Sasanow of Broadway World wrote:

“Donata Cucinotta was the center of it all as The Girl, with its rangy music. She captured all that was puerile and needy, and at the same time cruel and unthinking, in the dysfunctional worlds The Girl lives in and Imagines.”
“Cucinotta’s fiery soprano opened up with a blistering top, square on, raising goose bumps in the best possible way.”
