Canadian soprano Anne-Marie MacIntosh, hailed by The Globe and Mail as one of “The Voices of a Generation,” will enter her third-year as a San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow. Earlier this year, MacIntosh was featured in The Adlers: Live at the Drive-In concert. This fall, she made her War Memorial Opera House mainstage debut as Marzelline in the new production of Beethoven’s Fidelio, under the baton of San Francisco Opera Music Director Eun Sun Kim. She will start the new year by making another role and company debut as Micaëla in Bizet’s Carmen with Opera San José.
MacIntosh was a participant in the 2019 Merola Opera Program, where she performed the role of Diana in the world premiere of Jake Heggie’s If I Were You. As the “anchor of the opera,” she was praised for her “seamless technique, attractive lyric timbre, phrases of spine-chilling power and beauty” and her “easy stage deportment” (Opera Today). Her love of new works was displayed earlier that year in performances as Coloratura in Claude Vivier’s Kopernikus with Against the Grain Theatre, which earned her and her colleagues a Dora Mavor Moore Award for Outstanding Performance of an Ensemble, Opera.
