A Classical Singer's Journey into Cabaret
Regina Zona’s performance abilities have earned her great success and international acclaim throughout her very diverse career. As a classical singer, Regina has performed on opera and concert stages all over the world in a variety of repertoire from Mozart to Strauss. An avid recitalist, she specializes in the performance of American art song and has recorded three song cycles by Jake Heggie for the Naxos American Classics Label. In 2018, she wrote and performed her first one-woman show to critical acclaim. And in 2019 she has begun a new chapter, entering the world of cabaret. Critics have claimed Regina is “nothing short of sensational” (Sarasota Herald Tribune) and have called her “the absolute rapture of the evening” (Rome News).
