This September, Rachele joined her husband, tenor Dinyar Vania, for Opera Omaha's season opener, Verdi's Rigoletto. This was the first time the couple has appeared together since meeting in Knoxville Opera's production of Lucia di Lammermoor. The two joined Fabian Veloz in his American debut as Rigoletto, along with Burak Bigili as Sparafucile, and the orchestra was led by the impeccable Steven White.
'Soprano Rachele Gilmore was a glittering standout. She displayed a wickedly quick, agile and precise coloratura, making it appear effortless and seamless. The way she filled the Orpheum was particularly impressive given her slight and slender frame, and she has the talent to become one of opera’s greatest stars.' - Omaha World Herald
Rachele Gilmore, who sang the role of Gilda, was the audience favorite. Her crystalline voice and sensual shaping of 'Caro nome' had just the right amount of desire and innocence to realize her character vividly. - Opera News
