Tharanga Goonetilleke

Critically acclaimed soprano, Tharanga Goonetilleke’s performances have been praised by the Washington Times as ‘Magical’ and her voice by The New York times as ‘appealingly rich’. Tharanga is a native of Sri Lanka. She graduated with her Artist Diploma for Opera Studies as well as her Master of Music degree from The Juilliard School. Tharanga is the first and only woman from Sri Lanka to have been accepted to Juilliard so far. She is also an Associate of the Trinity College of Music, London.

Tharanga has sung leading roles in Opera under the baton of famous conductors such as Lorin Maazel, George Manahan, Anne Manson and Gary Wedow, to name a few. She has worked with renowned directors Stephen Wadsworth, Robin Guarino, Fabrizio Melano and Jay Lesenger. She has over a dozen major operatic roles under her belt including Mimi ( La boheme/Puccini), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte/ Mozart), Ginevra (Ariodante/Handel) and Blanche (The Dialogues of the Carmelites /Poulenc ). She is also a performer of oratorio and of contemporary music. Her soprano solo renditions of Carmina Burana have been a particular favorite of most audiences as well as critics.

She is a recipient of the President Scholarship of Sri Lanka. At Juilliard she was awarded the Makiko Narumi Memorial prize. In 2015 Tharanga was named a TED Fellow. Tharanga is also the founder of TharangArt, her visual and musical arts project, exploring collaborations between different disciplines of art.
