Milagros Poblador
soprano | Spain, °1964
SINGING 1996 : Laureate
Madrid born Poblador Milagros, soprano, started studying in the Conservatorio Superior de Música of Madrid at the age of 9, but without the goal of dedicating herself professionally. She studied Pharmacy and received the title of Voice Teacher with honours. It was only when she lost her pharmacy job that she met the soprano Ana Fernaud in a course at the Conservatory, who persuaded Milagros to give her voice an opportunity and leave the pharmacy for later.

A little later Poblador Milagros won a spot in the chorus of the Teatro La Zarzuela, which marked the beginning of her professional career as a singer. In this theater, with the director Emilio Sagi, she sang her first roles as a soloist: Marina (94) and soon after she debuted die Königin der Nacht (Die Zauberflöte - Mallorca 96), a role she has presented all over Central Europe and with which she has already completed her hundredth performance, Blonde (Die Entführung aus dem Serail - Peralada 97), Nannetta (Falstaff - Oviedo 97), Oscar (Un ballo in maschera - Mallorca 97)...

Poblador Milagros participated in many singing competitions and was awarded several prizes among which the Prize for best Light Soprano and the 4th and 5th Level Liceu Prize in the Francisco Viñas Competition, the First Prize in the Francisco Alonso Competition and the First Prize in Eugenio Marco's Competition of Sabadell (1994). There she met her teacher and mentor, the tenor Francisco Lázaro - who was one of the jurors - and it was this event which marked a turning point in her artistic career.

Francisco Lázaro urged her to leave Spain: she began working with the Landestheater in Linz (Austria 98/99), from where her career was launched. Since, she has performed at the Stadttheater St. Gallen, Wiener Staatsoper, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Opernhaus Zürich, Oper am Rhein Düsseldorf, Semperoper Dresden, La Maestranza of Sevilla, Palacio Euskalduna de Bilbao, Teatro Real of Madrid ... and her beloved Gran Teatre del Liceu with which she has been collaborating since 1997.

Poblador Milagros has sung, among others, the following parts for Coloratura Soprano: Lucia di Lammermoor, La Sonnambula, Rigoletto, La Traviata, La Bohème (“Musetta”), The Rake's Progress, Les contes d'Hoffmann (“Olympia”), Don Pasquale, L’elisir d’amore, Doña Francisquita, L’enfant et les sortilèges (“Rosignol and le Feu”) and Ariadne auf Naxos (“Zerbinetta”), alternating with the great Edita Gruberova, under such prestigious conductors like: L. Hager, G. Carella, F. Haider, Josep Pons, Rozdestvensky, R. Norrington, R. Weikert, A. Guadagno, S. Ozawa and such directors as: Lindsay Kemp, M.A.Marelli, J.Font, P. Busse ...

From 2000 until 2006, she has been closely linked to the Wiener Staatsoper, where she debuted in the role of “die Königin der Nacht” and where she has sung, among other roles: “Blonde”, “die Seele” (Die Jakobsleiter of A. Schönberg), “Amina” (La Sonnambula), “Musetta”, “Elvira” (L'italiana in Algeri), “Oscar”, “Olympia” and “die kleine Frau” (Der Riese vom Steinfeld of F. Cerha).
