Ana María Martínez opens Lyric Opera of Chicago’s season in Don Giovanni

On September 27, Ana María Martínez returns to the Lyric Opera of Chicago to open the company’s 2014-15 season with Don Giovanni. Ana María reprises her signature role of Donna Elvira, a part that Opera News raved “showed off her considerable comedic and dramatic abilities…and the fiery brilliance of her singing.”

The production, directed by Robert Falls, reunites Ana María with Mariusz Kwiecien in the title role, and also features Marina Rebeka as Donna Anna, Kyle Ketelsen as Leporello, and Antonio Poli as Don Ottavio. Sir Andrew Davis conducts.
