Date of birth

"Soprano of international fame. Interpreter of opera, zarzuela and classic songs. Considered by the critics as the heir of the divas of such prestige as Montserrat Caballé or Teresa Berganza."

Born in Fitero (Navarra), in 1958. She studied with Edurne Aguerri at the Pablo Sarasate Music Conservatoire Conservatory in Pamplona and later with Arthur Janzen in Germany. Pisa was the home to her professional debut, with “Los Pescadores de Perlas” by Bizet. In 1991, she interpreted for the first time the role of Musetta in “La Bohème” at La Scala in Milan and, soon after, debuted in the La Bastilla Opera Theatre in Paris. Amongst the directors with which she has collaborated are Claudio Scimone, Ros Marbá, Giuseppe Sinopoli and Gianluigi Gelmetti. She has sung at the Colón Theatre in Buenos Aires, the Monnaie in Brussels and the Metropolitan in New York (2001), where she swept the public away as Zerlina in “Don Giovanni”.
