In addition to being named one of opera’s “25 Rising Stars” by Opera News, she has been designated one of “Idaho’s Top 10 Most Influential Women of the Century” by USA Today. Her “alluring voice and incredible range” (Washington Post) are frequently praised for the singing actress.
Ms. López has displayed remarkable perseverance and adaptation in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic’s hurdles. She has taken part in virtual and live recitals with prominent opera companies during the 2020–2021 season, including Opera Idaho, Opera Las Vegas, Austin Opera, Opera Southwest, Chatter ABQ, and Madison Opera. Notably, she performed with the Pacific Symphony for the first time, mesmerizing audiences as Violetta in their 90-minute La traviata rendition.
Ms. López was named Opera Idaho’s first Artistic Advisor in January 2021. Cecilia will collaborate closely with the General Director to help develop the future of Opera Idaho.
