On February 6, Ailyn Pérez makes her long-awaited house debut at New York’s Metropolitan Opera in a star-studded production of Bizet’s Carmen (Feb 6–March 7).  For her inaugural appearances with the fabled company, Ailyn will sing the role of Micaëla for seven performances in Richard Eyre’s hit production of Bizet’s masterpiece.  Under the baton of French maestro Louis Langrée, she sings opposite the Don Josés of star tenors Roberto Alagna (Feb 6–26) and Jonas Kaufmann (March 4 & 7), with Elina Garanca reprising her acclaimed account of Bizet’s title role. “Every aspiring opera singer dreams of performing one day on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera,” says Ailyn, “and the thought of making my debut there this winter is something that fills me with abundant joy and profound gratitude. To sing in a production that includes some of today’s most celebrated artists is a source of enormous pride, and I can hardly wait to work together with such esteemed colleagues.”  Further information here
