With her Verdi roles praised as “loving and sensitive, fierce and provocative, raw but generous” (Le Soir) and “fully nuanced … alternately sensuously cooing in warm, honeyed tones and soaring regally … spellbinding and dramatically compelling” (Baltimore Sun), Ann McMahon Quintero’s 2015-16 season includes her Asian debut with Musica Viva Hong Kong as Azucena in Il trovatore. She will also return to the role of Mistress Quickly in Falstaff with Opera Delaware. The 2014-15 season included her debut performances of Ulrica in Verdi’s Un ballo in maschera with Austin Lyric Opera and performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with Buffalo Philharmonic, under JoAnn Falletta. The season also included several performances of Verdi’s Requiem with the Defiant Requiem Foundation conducted by Murry Sidlin, including at New York’s Avery Fisher Hall and Boston Symphony Hall. Ms. Quintero also toured Poland as a soloist in Handel’s Messiah with Boston Baroque, with whom future collaborations include Cornelia in Giulio Cesare.
