Hailed by The New York Times as “a beautiful woman who commands the stage” and “a major  soprano,” Ailyn Pérez is in demand at the world’s leading opera houses and cultural capitals.  As Opera News observes, “The phrase ‘an embarrassment of riches’ might have been invented  to describe the combination of talents that belong to Ailyn Pérez … who truly seems to have it  all.” Internationally celebrated for her signature artistry, as the winner of the 2012 Richard  Tucker Award she became the first Hispanic recipient in the award’s history. 

Notable engagements of the current season include Ailyn’s greatly anticipated title role debut  as Puccini’s Madama Butterly at Teatro di San Carlo, which she reprises later this season at  Houston Grand Opera and Teatro Real de Madrid. At the Metropolitan Opera, she makes her  thrilling role debut as Florencia Grimaldi in a new production of Daniel Catán’s Florencia en el  Amazonas and stars as Micaëla in Carmen. Additionally, she sings her first performances with  Washington Concert Opera as Magda in La Rondine and stars as the title role of Tosca at Hamburg State Opera. 

Career highlights include Violetta (La traviata) at Opernhaus Zürich, the Hamburgische  Staatsoper, Staatsoper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsoper, San Francisco Opera, Teatro alla Scala,  and the Royal Opera House – Covent Garden, where she was hailed as “an ideal Violetta”  (Observer, UK). Pérez then went on to appear at Covent Garden in the same season, as the title  role in Massenet’s Manon, and for her role debut as Liù (Turandot). Other highlights  include Thaïs, Mimì and Musetta (La bohème), and Juliette (Roméo et Juliette) at The  Metropolitan Opera; Adina (L’elisir d’amore) for the Bayerische Staatsoper, Deutsche Oper  Berlin, Wiener Staatsoper, and Washington National Opera; Contessa Almaviva (Le nozze di  Figaro) for Houston Grand Opera (having made her house debut there as Desdemona in Otello);  Violetta and title role of Manon on a tour of Japan with the Royal Opera House; Tatyana Bakst  in the world premiere of Jake Heggie’s Great Scott (featured on an acclaimed Erato recording  release) and Manon for The Dallas Opera; house debuts at the Bolshoi Theatre as Mimì (La  bohème) and at Glyndebourne as Alice Ford; Contessa Almaviva (Le nozze di Figaro) and  Marguerite (Faust) for Hamburgische Staatsoper; Marguerite (Faust) in Santa Fe and Amelia  Grimaldi Simon Boccanegra at Teatro alla Scala and Staatsoper Berlin, and also opposite Leo  Nucci at Opernhaus Zürich.

Ailyn has also appeared in recital for London’s  Rosenblatt Recitals at Wigmore Hall, Philadelphia’s Kimmel Center, and with the Santa Fe  Desert Chorale. Her debut album, “Poème d’un jour” (a program of French and Italian songs on  the Opus Arte label) was released to rave reviews, with the UK’s Independent newspaper  awarding it five stars, while International Record Review confessed, “Every so often, a singer  comes along who completely bowls you over.”

During her triumphant 2022/23 season, Ailyn made her highly anticipated role debut as  Elisabetta di Valois in Verdi’s Don Carlo at Teatro di San Carlo. She also sang her signature role  of Mimì in Puccini’s La Bohème at three different venues: the Royal Opera House, Staatsoper  Berlin, and Opéra national de Paris. Ms. Pérez returned to the Metropolitan Opera for her role  debut as Blanche in Poulenc’s Dialogues des Carmélites and reprised the role of Alice Ford in  Verdi’s Falstaff after her acclaimed turn in the production’s 2019 run. She concluded the season  with her greatly anticipated title role debut as Rusalka at Santa Fe Opera, where critics hailed  her performance as “a force of nature” (Santa Fe Mexican). 

A highlight of the 2019/20 season included the release of her new digital album, Mi Corazón,  with Chinese guitarist Xuefei Yang, available to stream exclusively on Apple Music and iTunes.  The album is a heartfelt celebration of Ailyn’s vibrant and music-filled heritage, featuring much loved Spanish and Portuguese songs, as well as songs by Manuel de Falla, Manuel Ponce, and  Heitor Villa-Lobos.

Reviews

“Ailyn Pérez has a tangy lyric soprano with a touch of spinto edge on the top, providing dramatic chills with Mimi’s variously angry and helpless outbursts in the third act”
James Jorden

“Ailyn Pérez est une Antonia bouleversante dont le destin se confond, dans la vision de Carsen, avec celui de la Donna Elvira de Don Giovanni. De bout en bout, elle livre un chant délicat et subtil, avec une prononciation impeccable.”
Forum Opera

“Ailyn Pérez was a fabulous Micaëla, singing a heartfelt “Je dis que rien ne m’épouvante”, rich in tone, the highlight of the evening”

“Pérez’s voice matched the role perfectly…The soprano’s interpretation of “Elle a fui, la tourterelle!” was very moving, and she delivered an amazing pianissimo A natural on the second
verse. Her voice blended perfectly with Fabiano during their duet and sang several high B naturals effortlessly. She also blasted out long powerfully sustained D natural off stage before following it with a marvelous high C sharp at the end of her scene with Doctor Miracle. Overall, she displayed strong control in the high register, as well as a strong center Operwire”

“Soprano Ailyn Pérez made a fantastic role debut as Nedda. Besides great personal charm, she had the ideal voice for the role, fleet and silvery in the ballad and becoming fuller and juicier at dramatic climaxes.”
Jenny Camilleri
