Anayanci Quiros Madama Butterfly


ANAYANCI QUIRÓS, lyric soprano

It was with the overwhelming success caused by her last-minute substitution in the role of “Butterfly”, at the National Theater of Costa Rica, in the summer of 2005, that the Costa Rican soprano Anayanci Quirós conquered the audience of her country and obtained the highest acclaim from critics and both international and local experts. Her Butterfly was described by the local critics as “very emotive” and “particularly moving in the last scene”.

Gifted with a “magnificent, potent voice, of a remarkable timbre” and “a natural and accurate intuition” (“La Nación” daily, Costa Rica), Quirós has demonstrated vocal, musical and acting abilities that allow her to perform outstandingly in concert (Lieder and Spanish song), opera, sacred and choral-symphonic repertoire and musical theater, in Costa Rica and other Latin American countries. In 2003, she won the Second Prize at the International Voice Competition of Trujillo (Peru). Undoubtedly, her innate talent, capacity and versatility make Anayanci Quirós one of the most promising Latin American singers of the new generation.

Besides her acknowledged performing qualities, Anayanci Quirós has successfully staged operatic works, as founder and artistic director of the private local company Ópera de Cámara de Costa Rica (“Chamber Opera Company of Costa Rica”). Not only has this company fostered the work of lyric singers in her country, but has staged rarely performed operas in Costa Rica, such as “Trouble in Tahiti” (L. Bernstein) and “The Face on the Barroom Floor” (T. Colline). After a Traviata with local and international casts, in a full house, Quirós closed the 2005 season with a Lyric Gala featuring Brahms’ “Love Waltzes”. In 2006 she will present “Don Giovanni”, in commemoration of the 250th anniversary of the birth of W. A. Mozart. In this production, Quirós will sing the role of Donna Anna.

Anayanci Quirós was disciple of the renowned Costa Rican soprano Elena Ma. Villalobos, at the University of Costa Rica and the National University of Costa Rica. In addition, she studied acting at the National Theater Workshop and National Theater Company of her country. At present, she receives vocal training with the eminent Italian singer and teacher Oscar Scaglioni, considered the father of the operatic tradition in Costa Rica.
