Biosketch
Soprano singer Miss Susie Helena Georgiadis was born in Porto Alegre, Brazil from a Greek father
and German mother, but she lives and works in Italy. She has both Italian and Brazilian nationalities. This extraordinary cultural melting-pot permitted her to develop an extremely wide range of
musical interest. An artist with a great sensitivity during interpretation capped by a stage presence
of magnetic effect and spiced with a warm velvet voice. Her exquisite musicality allows quite an
uncommon eclectic use of her voice. Indeed her repertoire encompasses different styles, from
operas up till the 900’, music passing through the Viennese and Hungarian operettas. She also
indulges in challenges like the fine interpretation of sophisticated Brazilian classical music, with
remarkable results.
