One To Watch: Corinne Winters, opera singer, 29


"I love rock, but I'm definitely meant to be in the opera world", says the American soprano who will make her European debut next month singing the female lead in ENO's La Traviata.

Winters made her Met Opera debut in Rigoletto in 2011, while a student at the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia, where she still resides. She followed it up with the premiere of Rufus Wainwright's All Days Are Night: Songs for Lulu, performing the entire song cycle at the New York City Opera.
