Cuban-American soprano Elaine Alvarez burst onto the international opera scene in 2007, with her soulful portrayal of Mimi in Puccini’s La Bohème at the Lyric Opera of Chicago. Characterized by a distinct ‘buffed bronze soprano’ (Opera News), Alvarez has blossomed into a true spinto d’agilitá, delivering performances rich with ‘melting, voluminous sound’ (Frankfurt Allgemeine), ‘spectacular agility’ (Opera World Magazine), and ‘a profoundly genuine sentimentality’ (Miami Herald).

Soprano Elaine Alvarez is stunning in her role debut as Florencia, a world-famous but heartbroken opera singer returning to the wilds of her native Brazil to find her lost love. Her rich, supple voice glides and soars effortlessly through the florid, note-rich score and she acts the role with a sensitivity and emotional conviction normally seen only in veterans of a role.
