Ana María Martínez shines in Lyric Opera of Chicago’s diamond jubilee

This past weekend’s gala concert celebrating 60 years of Lyric Opera of Chicago earned acclaim for Ana María Martínez. Recently seen with the company in a season-opening new production of Don Giovanni, Ana María appeared on the company’s gala program with a performance from one of her other signature roles, Cio-Cio San.

“Ana María Martínez delivered as lovely a reading of Madama Butterfly’s ‘Un bel dì’ as one is likely to hear today,” declared the Chicago Tribune. The Chicago Classical Review added that the performance was “touching.”

Later this week, Ana María returns to Texas for a concert to with the Lake Houston Musical Arts Society benefit the National Association of Teachers of Singers. Click here for ticket info.
