New with Parnassus: Dennis Orellana

19.04.2022

We are very pleased to announce the world wide management of the male soprano, Dennis Orellana, from Honduras.

Dennis Orellana, born in 2000 and highly talented, will take part in several high-carat Baroque productions of season 2022/23.

During the Bayreuth Baroque Opera Festival 2022, he will sing the title role in Leonardo Vinci's recently revived opera Alessandro nell’Indie, under the direction of Max Emanuel Cenčić and musical direction of Martyna Pastuszka, while, also in Bayreuth, singing Zeffiro in Il Nascimento dell’Aurora and Ernesto in Griselda, both in concert version and, for the first time, in front of a large international audience.
Born in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, Dennis Orellana started studying music professionally as trombonist with the San Pedro Sula Youth Symphonic Orchestra under Alfonso Flores. While training his voice he also studied Computer Sciences and Digital Design.

In September 2019, he was admitted to the Escuela Superior de Canto de Madrid, the only European university dedicated solely to opera singing. In the same year, he attended Master classes at Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome with soprano Emanuela Salucci, and in Madrid with Carolina Alcaide. He was also admitted to a one year class at Hochschule der Künste (HMDK) in Stuttgart via the Erasmus programme.


In March 2021, Dennis had his role debut as Amor in the premiere of La selva sin amor. In April he gave life to Cherubino in a production of Mozart's Le nozze di Figaro by Marina Bollaín and Nacho Rodríguez.

His professional and international debut Dennis had in August, as Berardo in Carlo il Calvo (opera by Nicola Porpora) at Teatro Auditorio San Lorenzo del Escorial, on stage with the great Max Emanuel Cenčić, Julia Lezhneva, Franco Fagioli, and others, and accompanied by Armonia Atenea under the baton of Markellos Chryssicos.
Then, in February 2022, Dennis sang Moth in Britten's Sommernachtstraum at the Wilhelma-Theater in Stuttgart.


Exciting engagements await Dennis Orellana in the season 2022/23, among them the roles of Ernesto in Bononcini's Griselda in Wrocław, Berardo in Porpora's Carlo il Calvo in Dortmund and at Scala di Milano (his house debut), as well as Alessandro in Caldara's Il Venceslao in Gliwice and at Theater an der Wien (again his house debut).
 
Here you can listen to three of his most recent recordings:
 
Vincenzo Bellini – I Capuleti e I Montecchi. Arie Se Romeo t’uccise un figlio .. La tremenda ultrice spada
 
Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Le Nozze di Figaro. Arie Va’la, veccnia pedante .. Non so piu cosa son, cosa faccio 

Georg Friedrich Händel – Alessandro. Arie Vil trofeo d’un’alma imbelle

Welcome to Parnassus, Dennis!
