She made her international debut to great acclaim in the title role Aïda for Teatro Municipal de Santiago, returning there later in the season in the title role Lucrezia Borgia.  She made her US debut at Chicago Lyric Opera in the role of First Lady Die Zauberflöte, and also covered the title role Ariadne auf Naxos.  She returned to Santiago de Chile for her role debut as Elisabeth Tannhäuser.

A well-established concert artist, her repertoire includes Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis, Dvořák Stabat Mater, Elgar’s Caractacus, The Dream of Gerontius and The Kingdom, Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Mozart’s C Minor Mass and Requiem, Orff’s Carmina Burana, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle and Stabat Mater, Tippett’s A Child of our Time, Vaughan Williams’ A Sea Symphony and Verdi’s Requiem, among many other works.  She recently made her debut at the Royal Festival Hall with the UK premiere of Torsten Rasch’s Mein Herz Brennt, with René Pape and the London Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.

As a recitalist, she has performed Britten’s Cabaret Songs, Grieg’s Opus 48, Strauss’ Opus 48, Ebel’s As I Walk From Her Grave (world premiere), Wagner’s Wesendonck Lieder, Csanyi-Wills’ The Last Letter (world premiere) and Berg’s Sieben Frühe Lieder.

Engagements in the 2012-13 season include her return to the Royal Opera House as Helmwige, Third Norn and cover Sieglinde in the revival of Keith Warner’s production of Der Ring des Nibelungen, as Ker The Minotaur and covering Susan Bullock in the title role of Britten’s Gloriana.

On the concert platform, she performs at the Royal Opera House’s Extraordinary Gala marking the Queen’s Jubilee alongside Roberto Alagna, Angela Gheorghiu and Bryn Terfel and makes her Carnegie Hall debut with performances of Beethoven Symphony No.9 and Missa Solemnis as part of a US tour with the Monteverdi Choir and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique under Sir John Eliot Gardiner.
