Introduction

Nicaraguan-American Soprano Gabriella Reyes is one of the most exciting emerging talents on the operatic stage today.

In the 2018/19 season, Gabriella made her critically acclaimed house debut as the High Priestess in Aida at the Metropolitan Opera, returning later in the season for First Lady in The Magic Flute followed by Nella in Gianni Schicchi (Il Trittico). This follows a company debut for the Met’s Summer Recital series last June. Gabriella also returned to the New York Choral Society for Tippet’s A Child of Our Time at Carnegie Hall and will make her Santa Fe Opera debut this summer as Musetta in La bohème.

Highlights of last season include excerpts of Die Zauberflöte in concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by Maestro Gustavo Dudamel, and her debut with the New York Choral Society for Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. She was also chosen as a finalist in the 2017 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and honoured earlier this year by the Richard Tucker Music Foundation with a Sara Tucker Study Grant.

    “The part of Musetta was inspired by the somewhat unconventional actress, singer, and painter’s model, Marie-Christine Roux. Charismatic Metropolitan Opera soprano Gabriella Reyes took over the part of Musetta on short notice but she made a mark on the Santa Fe audience with her large, full-blooded voice and ability to enter and sing her waltz, “Quando me’n vo,” on roller skates!”
    Broadway World, Maria Nockin, 1 July 2019

    “Connecticut soprano Gabriella Reyes was a endearing Musetta, making a fast-paced entrance on roller blades, invoking one to imagine she is ice-skating in a Parisian winter… Reyes embodied the range of emotions one associates with Musetta – her furious battles and ultimate reconciliation with Marcello, and her empathetic friendship with Mimi.”
    Opera Warhorses, July 6 2019

    “The extraordinary talent in this run is not confined to just the lead roles: the supporting cast was filled out with superb singers, as well… As the Priestess of Phthah, Gabriella Reyes was hair-raising in her first Met performance, giving a manic invocation from offstage.”

    Eric C. Simpson, The New York Classical Review, 27 September 2018

    “Soprano Gabriella Reyes made a notable impression in her extended solo as a priestess.”

    Richard Sasanow, Broadway World, 29 September 2018
