“Her soprano harks back to the golden age…impressive in its quiet moments as it is at full power,” raves Opera News of Ana María Martínez. The Grammy Award-winning soprano has performed title roles at Houston Grand Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago, the Metropolitan Opera, Washington National Opera, the Glyndebourne Festival, and Opéra National de Paris. She also voiced the role of opera singer Alessandra in the third season of Amazon’s Mozart in the Jungle. During the 2019-20 season, she appears as Cio-Cio San in Madama Butterfly with Opéra National de Paris, Lyric Opera of Chicago, and the Metropolitan Opera, and performs in concert with the Houston Symphony for Composer-in-Residence Jimmy López’s Dreamers Oratorio. She has recently taken on the role of artistic advisor for Houston Grand Opera and is currently serving as artist-in-residence at Rice University’s Shepherd School of Music.
