Jenny Ribeiro, Soprano
Jenny Ribeiro, described as “capable...spicy...and saucy,” most recently appeared as Susanna in Regina Opera’s acclaimed production of Le Nozze di Figaro. She has created opera and musical theater roles on both coasts and works with living composers continually.
After graduating from Central Washington University, Jenny continued her vocal training with Marni Nixon, Diana Soviero and, currently, Olga Makarina. She has also been a young artist with The Remarkable Theatre Brigade, Dicapo Opera Theater, and Opera Manhattan. Frequently performed roles include Pamina (The Magic Flute), Susanna (The Marriage of Figaro), Nella (Gianni Schicchi), Musetta (La Boheme), Gretel (Hansel and Gretel), Serpina (La serva padrona) and Giulietta (The Tales of Hoffmann). She also performed the role of a Coryphee (Le Roi Malgre Lui) with the Bard Summerscape Festival and recently made her Carnegie Hall solo debut as Elvira (Song of Norway).
Equally at home on the concert stage, Jenny premiered two 15-Minutes-of-Fame for Vox Novus and has performed with such groups as West Fourth New Music Collective, Composers Play Composers and the NY Virtuoso Singers.
Jenny currently lives in the New York metro area with her husband, tenor Brian Ribeiro, and their new baby, Joshua Henry.
