It was announced this week that rising star soprano Gabriella Reyes has been named as one of the Lincoln Center’s Emerging Artists for 2019. Each of the eleven resident arts organisations within New York’s illustrious Lincoln Center nominates an artist of incredible talent and promise for the award with Gabriella’s nomination coming from the Metropolitan Opera, where she is currently a member of the prestigious Lindemann Young Artist Development Programme.
This extraordinary honour continues a wonderful season for Gabriella which began with her Metropolitan Opera debut as the High Priestess in Aida followed by a highly successful onstage debut as Nella in Gianni Schicchi. Before the end of the year, Gabriella will debut a third role at the Met; First Lady in The Magic Flute.
Each Emerging Artist will receive $7,500 to be used for career advancement with winners being formally recognized on 27 February at 7:00pm in the Stanley H. Kaplan Penthouse. Congratulations Gabi!
