Release Coincides with Soprano’s Metropolitan Opera Debut November 19th

On November 15th, Naxos will release the first full-length solo CD from Ana María Martínez, a sophisticated and versatile young soprano who will be making her Metropolitan Opera debut November 19th as Micaela in Bizet’s Carmen.

The new Naxos CD of popular soprano songs and arias highlight the qualities that have made Martínez, who also appears on the Milken Archive recording of Mario Castelnuovo-Tedesco’s Naomi and Ruth (8.559404), an up-and-coming international opera star. 

Martínez appeared earlier this month as Countess Almaviva in the Houston Grand Opera’s production of The Marriage of Figaro; she will perform as Violetta in La Traviata at Covent Garden in January, and will make her debut at the Paris Opera, singing the role of Amelia in Simon Boccanegra, in Spring 2006.

In 2004-2005, Martínez, a native of Puerto Rico, maintained a busy schedule here in the United States, making her debut with the Houston Grand Opera in Daniel Catan's Salsipuedes and performing with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra at the Kennedy Center.  Other highlighs of the season included performances of Mimi in La Boheme with the Los Angeles Opera and a return to Houston for a revival production of Romeo and Juliette.  The summer festival season found Ms. Martínez at the Santa Fe Opera in another role debut, singing Rosina in a new production of Rossini's Il Barbiere di Siviglia.
