San Francisco Opera Highlights: The Adlers: Live at the Drive-In
Soprano Anne-Marie MacIntosh, hailed by The Globe and Mail as one of “The Voices of a Generation,” is currently a second-year San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow. MacIntosh was a participant in the 2019 Merola Opera Program, where she performed the role of Diana in the world premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’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 also displayed earlier that year in her performances as Coloratura in Claude Vivier’s Kopernikus with Against the Grain Theatre. In the fall of 2018, she made an exciting role debut as Juliette in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette with Calgary Opera. This was a homecoming for MacIntosh, as she was a member of Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artist Program from 2016–2018. Her many other operatic credits include Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Cleopatra (Giulio Cesare), and Adina (L’Elisir d’Amore). On the concert stage, her performances include Mahler’s Fourth Symphony with the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra and Poulenc’s Gloria and the finale to Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with the Vancouver Bach Choir. MacIntosh is a graduate of the University of Manitoba (Master of Music) and the University of British Columbia (Bachelor of Music).
