ABOUT MARTINA ARROYO:

For a generation, from the stages of the world's most prestigious opera houses — New York's Metropolitan Opera, the Paris Opera, London's Covent Garden, Milan's La Scala, the Vienna State Opera and the Buenos Aires Teatro Colón — to the concert halls of Salzburg, Berlin, Rome, Paris and New York, the name of Martina Arroyo has been synonymous with music making of the highest order.

Famous for her interpretations of Verdi, Puccini, Strauss and Mozart, Ms. Arroyo has had the honor of three opening night performances at the Metropolitan Opera, two of them in consecutive seasons. At ease with contemporary music, she has premiered works of William Bolcom and Carlo Franci and was chosen to present the world premiere of Samuel Barber's Andromache's Farewell as well as Karlheinz Stockhausen’s Momente. She later recorded both pieces and performed them throughout the United States and Europe.
