Internationally acclaimed performing and recording artist, Maureen O’Flynn, garners enthusiastic praise from critics, peers and audiences, not only for her brilliant, soaring voice but also for her dramatic interpretations.  Of an opening night performance of Roméo et Juliette at the Metropolitan Opera, The New York Times said the soprano “won a deserved ovation from the audience,” and Variety exclaimed, “not only a superb technician, with the full coloratura arsenal at her disposal, but a sensitive interpreter.” Ms. O’Flynn is regarded as one of the finest interpreters of Gilda in Rigoletto, performing the role with the Metropolitan Opera under the baton of Plácido Domingo and debuted with Dallas Opera, winning the company’s Callas Award as “Outstanding New Artist of the Year.” Over the past few seasons, noted engagements included Juliette in Roméo et Juliette at the Metropolitan Opera; Blue Fairy in the premiere of Pinocchio with the Minnesota Opera; Pat Nixon in Nixon in China with Cincinnati Opera; and Mimi in La Bohème with the Minnesota Orchestra and the Indianapolis Opera.

Ms. O’Flynn is equally at home on the theatre and musical theatre stage. She performed Guinevere in Camelot with the Berkshires Theatre Festival, as well as Eliza in My Fair Lady. Other theatre credits include the roles of Julie in Carousel, Jenny in Company and Meg in Damn Yankees. Next, she returns to the Metropolitan Opera for La Bohème and performs Violetta in La Traviata at the Indianapolis Opera.
