The Spanish-Argentinean mezzo-soprano Marisa Martins began her studies in Buenos Aires where she was born, and continued at the Barcelona Conservatory. Her opera repertoire is principally Monteverdi (Ottavia, Proserpina), Mozart (Dorabella, Annio, Zerlina, Idamante) and Rossini (Zaida, Doralice), rôles that she has sung at the Liceu in Barcelona, La Zarzuela in Madrid, Theâtre de la Monnaie in Brussels, Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro, and at the Mozart Festival in La Coruña, among others. Especially interested in the relationship between voice and movement, she has worked in productions that combine music and modern dance in the theatres of Basel and Lucerne, Hebbel-Theater in Berlin, the Opera of Cologne, Brooklyn Academy of Music of New York, the Early Music Festival in Innsbruck and for The Fischhouse in San Francisco. As a recitalist she has a predilection for French and Spanish repertoire and has given world premières of works by Montsalvatge, Enric Palomar, David Padrós, Josep M. Quadreny and Jordi Rossinyol. Among her recordings are the Madrigali guerrieri ed amoros of Monteverdi for Harmonia Mundi under the direction of René Jacobs and for Columna Musica Frederic Mompou –Combat del somni-, Montsalvatge Integral de canto (Vol I)“ and the Grammy nominated opera El gato con botas with the orchestra of the Liceu.
