in voice and double-bass at the Conservatorio Superior of San Sebastian. She
began vocal study with the Navarrian tenor Juan Eraso, going on to do advanced
work with Giuseppe Valdengo and Franca Mattiucci. She has taken part in numerous
concerts and productions both of operatic repertory and of religious and chamber
music in Italy, Spain, and France. She has performed leading rôles in
Rossini's Il barbiere di Siviglia and L'italiana in Algeri, Donizetti's
La favorita, Puccini's Madama Butterfly, and Verdi's Il trovatore.
Performances of religious works have included Bach's Mass in B minor,
Vivaldi's Gloria, the Stabat Maters of Pergolesi and Rossini,
the latter's Petite Messe Solennelle, and Verdi's Requiem. A finalist
in various international competitions, she has sung at the theatre of Montecarlo
and, under the baton of Daniel Oren, at the Teatro Regio in Turin.
