Cecilia Violeta Lopez is an opera singer of Mexican decent, original from Idaho. She has been a long time friend of the show, as we had followed her career since short after her graduation from Las Vegas University and her amazing time performing with “Opera San Jose”.
After her residence with the opera San Jose program, she was elected to be part of the opera program with the Martina Arroyo Foundation in New York, New York. Now she has been traveling the country, singing in many opera theaters some of the most famous roles for sopranos.
The New York Times had reviewed her performances as “beautifully sung by the soprano Cecilia Violetta López, whose bright, expressive voice made a strong impression in several works, including de Falla’s ‘El Retablo de Maese Pedro.’” (Vivien Schweitzer, The New York Times, 2015/08/11).
Opera News Magazine just named Lopez as one of the 25 young rising stars in the world of Opera (OperaNews, Oct 2015, Vol80).
Lopez career is definitely in the rise and her great experience so far shows how versatile and powerful this soprano can be.
