Silvia Colloca Career
Colloca is an opera-trained mezzo-soprano who worked as a musical theatre performer in Italy before pursuing a career in film. Silvia Colloca received glowing reviews from the Australian press for her performance as Orfeo in Shannon Murphy’s 2015 Spectrum Now production of Gluck’s Orfeo ed Euridice. Colloca’s performance was lauded by Diana Simmonds in Stage Noise: “Colloca’s rich yet pure and powerful mezzo soprano and dramatic acting range are ideally suited to the decision to make Orfeo an ambiguous and androgynous figure. In the early scenes, she projects all of the masculine and feminine strengths, as well as unabashed emotion, making the tragedy immediately palpable.”
Colloca made her debut as The Queen in Opera Queensland’s newly commissioned opera “Snow White,” which was performed during the Brisbane Festival in 2016. Silvia Colloca’s performance once again won the hearts of theatregoers and critics. Colloca’s work was described in the Sydney Morning Herald as “Silvia Colloca is outstanding as the mother; her sexiness and vulnerability are beautifully intertwined throughout the piece, and she effortlessly navigates the highs and lows that her character is endowed with. Her eventual breakdown is entertaining to watch “. Silvia is also credited as a show’s producer, creator, and writer. She launched her own YouTube channel and collaborated with Marion Grasby in 2017. They collaborated on the highly successful show “Wok X Pot,” which debuted in late 2018.
