mezzo soprano

Alejandra Villarreal Martinez, soprano, is originally from Southern California. Hailed as a “major voice,” “consistently rich and beautiful,” and capable of “tremendous fervor,” Ms. Martinez is proud to have had multiple engagements with Long Beach Opera with operas such as FridaThe Love Potion/Le Vin herbé, and Three Tales. Later, she made her Anchorage Opera debut with Frida in 2020. Soloist concert credits include performances at the National Council de la Raza, the world premiere of Juan Orrego-Salas’ Ash Wednesday, Beethoven’s Mass in C with Joseph Flummerfelt, Penderecki’s St. Luke Passion, and repeat engagements with the Evansville Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Roger Kalia. In October 2021, she played her first Cio-Cio-San in Puccini’s Madama Butterfly with Opera West, a role she was thrilled to reprise with Mo. Jun Märkl and the Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra. Ms. Martinez is passionate about promoting classical music and will serve as an opera ambassador to Santa Cruz, Bolivia this Spring with Mo. Isaac Terceros.
