Nicaraguan-American Soprano Gabriella Reyes is one of the most exciting emerging talents on the operatic stage today.
Having just made her critically acclaimed house debut as the High Priestess in Aida, Gabriella will make two further appearances at the Metropolitan Opera in the 2018/19 season; First Lady in The Magic Flute followed by Nella in Gianni Schicchi (Il Trittico). This follows a company debut for the Met’s Summer Recital series last June. Gabriella will also return to the New York Choral Society for Tippet’s A Child of Our Time at Carnegie Hall.
Highlights of last season include excerpts of Die Zauberflöte in concert with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, led by Maestro Gustavo Dudamel, and her debut with the New York Choral Society for Beethoven’s Symphony no. 9 with the New Haven Symphony Orchestra. She was also chosen as a finalist in the 2017 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and honoured earlier this year by the Richard Tucker Music Foundation with a Sara Tucker Study Grant.

“The extraordinary talent in this run is not confined to just the lead roles: the supporting cast was filled out with superb singers, as well… As the Priestess of Phthah, Gabriella Reyes was hair-raising in her first Met performance, giving a manic invocation from offstage.”
“Soprano Gabriella Reyes made a notable impression in her extended solo as a priestess.”
