Described by Opera News as “displaying a rock-solid lower range, clean and controlled tone and a wide expressive range” American mezzo soprano Peabody Southwell will revive her critically acclaimed Long Beach Opera performance as the title role in Piazzolla’s MARIA DE BUENOS AIRES for Chicago Opera Theater as her debut for the company in their current season. She made her Central City Opera debut in 2011 as Anna in Weill’s THE SEVEN DEADLY SINS and Zita in Puccini’s GIANNI SCHICCHI lauded by The Denver Post as “a virtual unknown who deliver[ed] two career-making turns.” She splits her time between Los Angeles and Camden, Maine.
