Hailed by the Globe and Mail as one of “The Voices of a Generation,” Canadian soprano Anne-Marie MacIntosh is a recent graduate of the Adler Fellowship at San Francisco Opera.
During her time at San Francisco Opera, Anne-Marie made her War Memorial Opera House mainstage debut as Marzelline in a new production of Beethoven’s Fidelio under the baton of newly-appointed Music Director Eun Sun Kim. She later sang the role of Soeur Valentine in Dialogues of the Carmelites and covered the roles of Donna Anna (Don Giovanni), Berta (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Annina (La Traviata), and Euridice (Orfeo ed Euridice). Days before completing the program in 2022, Anne-Marie jumped in with hours notice as Euridice for the final performance of Orfeo ed Euridice. The following night, she joined her Adler colleagues in their final concert, earning praise from San Francisco Classical Voice for her performance of Handel’s virtuosic “Scoglio d’immota fronte,” which “sounded like the clarion call of a famous diva at the beginning of her career.”
In the 2022 winter season, Anne-Marie made her role debut as Micäela in Carmen with Opera San José and joined San Diego Opera as the cover for Juliette in Roméo et Juliette. She was no stranger to the role, as she had made her debut as Juliette in 2018 with Calgary Opera. This was an operatic homecoming for MacIntosh, as she had been a member of Calgary Opera’s Emerging Artist Program from 2016-2018. She was lauded by Calgary Herald for her “highly commendable performance, her portrayal of Juliet girlish and graceful, but also containing inner fire.” Anne-Marie’s many other operatic credits include Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), Pamina (Die Zauberflöte), Cleopatra (Giulio Cesare), Adina (L’Elisir d’Amore), Lucia (The Rape of Lucretia), Abigail (The Crucible), and Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro).
