Megan Marino is praised by Opera News as “a gifted actress with a strong, appealing voice graced by a rich lower register.” In the 2020-21 season, she joined the Atlanta Opera Company Players in its inaugural Big Tent Series where she made her role debut as Carmen and was featured on the company’s Spotlight Media platform in the Mezzo Extravaganza, Crossroads and Mack the Knife concerts, the Orfano Mondo series, and fach-bending whilst playing the melodeon as Beppe in Pagliacci. Additionally, she debuted with Houston Grand Opera as Elsa Schraeder in My Favorite Things: The Sound of Music in Concert before returning to Santa Fe Opera as Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro. Also in 2021, she released her debut album The Travelled Road, the music of Evan Mack with long-time collaborator, pianist John Arida (PARMA Records). She was set to join Les musiciens du Louvre with Mark Minkowski conducting the Da Ponte Trilogy, but her debuts as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro, Zerlina in Don Giovanni, and Dorabella in Così fan tutte at the Opéra royal de Versailles; performances of this same trilogy for her debut at the Opéra national de Bordeaux last season have all been postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, as was her return to the Metropolitan Opera for a trio of roles in Lulu and her returns to Opéra national de Paris as Wellgunde in a new production of The Ring Cycle.
Engagements for the 2021-2022 season include debuts with the Gran Teatre del Liceu and Opéra national de Bordeaux for Mozart’s Da Ponte Trilogy, as well as returns to The Metropolitan Opera as Feodor in Boris Godunov, Atlanta Opera as Sesto in Giulio Cesare, The Dallas Opera as Suzuki in Madama Butterfly, and Santa Fe Opera.
