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).
