Praised for her “blinding brilliance,” Canadian Soprano Andrea Núñez is establishing herself as a versatile young artist. Andrea is thrilled to be making both a role and house debut with this production of Carmen at Pacific Opera Victoria. Upcoming this season, Andrea looks forward to debuting Juliette in Gounod’s Roméo et Juliette in Québec, and revisiting Adele in Die Fledermaus with Toronto Operetta Theatre.

In 21/22, Andrea opened Opéra de Montréal’s season with a double bill of Vaughn-Williams’ Riders to the Sea and Labrosse’s Flambeau de la nuit. She rejoined the company in May for their celebrated production of Barrie Kosky’s Mozart’s The Magic Flute as First Lady. Her season also saw a rescheduling of Toronto Operetta Theatre’s A Waltz Dream, with Núñez in the lead role of Princess Helene. She recently completed a residency at National Sawdust, working with celebrated librettist Royce Vavrek and composer Vivian Fung on a cycle of songs centred on her identity and experiences as a multi-racial Canadian, supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
