Gabriella Reyes

About this Artist

With a voice described as “lusciously colored” by Opera News, Nicaraguan American soprano Gabriella Reyes is one of the most exciting artists in music today. A former member of the Lindemann Young Artist Development Program at the Metropolitan Opera, Reyes returns to the Met in the 2023/24 season to perform the roles of Rosalba in a new production of Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el Amazonas with Yannick Nézet-Séguin and Liù in Turandot. She also makes her role debut as Nedda in Leoncavallo’s Pagliacci with the Lyric Opera of Kansas City and revisits the roles of Mimì in La bohème with the Atlanta Opera. Concert work includes a return to the role of Marzelline in Fidelio with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, in LA and on tour at the Liceu in Barcelona, the Philharmonie de Paris, and the Barbican in London.

In concert, Reyes has appeared frequently with the LA Phil and Gustavo Dudamel, including performing Bachianas Brasileiras and excerpts from Die Zauberflöte. She has also appeared as a soloist with the New York Choral Society and the New Haven Symphony Orchestra in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9. Other appearances include the Jacksonville Symphony as Musetta in La bohème, the Montclair Orchestra and David Chan in Behzad Ranjbaran’s Songs of Eternity, and the New Jersey Symphony Orchestra in a Mozart program.

Named a 2019 Lincoln Center Emerging Artist by the Metropolitan Opera, Reyes was also a recipient of a Sara Tucker Study Grant from the Richard Tucker Foundation in 2018 and a grand finalist in the 2017 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. She is a graduate of the Boston Conservatory.
