ANA LUCRECIA GARCÍA
“The most important vocal triumph of the night was soprano Lucrecia García, who debuted as Odabella with a performance marked by the clarinet, high precise notes, lustrous tones of the chest and the surprising flexibility in the role that the piece requires”
San Francisco Chronicle
When she debuted at La Scala, in Milan, the renowned baritone Leo Nucci said to her: "Woman, where were you hiding? Your voice is so important that soon you will be spoken about, everywhere" The critics have not stopped praising the spinto soprano voice and the dark timbre of the Venezuelan singer Ana Lucrecia García, known in the world of opera as Lucrezia. She studied singing at Queen Sofía College of Music, in Madrid with tenor Alfredo Kraus, and mezzo Teresa Berganza.
She has personified Odabella, from Attila; Abigail, from Nabucco; and Floria, from Tosca, in the most important opera houses of the world such as Teatro alla Scala in Milan; Teatro La Fenice; the Royal Opera House and the Verona Arena, where she debuted in 2010 with Aida, in a theater filled with 18 thousand people. Ana Lucrecia García has been revealed as one of the new voices of the Verdi repertoire.
Ana Lucrecia recently debuted in the roles of Santuzza (Cavalleria Rusticana) at the New National Theater, in Tokyo; Turandot, at Semperoper Dresden, and Amneris (Aida) at Verona Arena. She also sang Verdi's Requiem at the NCPA, in Mumbai; Aida (in a title role) at Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía, in Valencia, and at Teatr Wielki Opera Narodowa, in Warsaw; as well as in a concert with the St. Louis Symphony.
