Barbora de Nunes-Cambraia

The mezzo-soprano Barbora de Nunes-Cambraia, nominated for the Thalia Awards 2016 for the title role of Carmen, is unique in her specific, hard-to-classify voice type called Falcon, which is characterized by a mezzo-soprano color and a tessitura typical of a dramatic soprano. The name refers to the French soprano Cornélia Falcon (1814-1897), who became famous for her dark voice color and soprano range.
