Arianna Rodriguez



Poised and playful soprano Arianna Rodriguez has been praised by the San Francisco Chronicle as “crystalline” for her performance in Merola Opera Program’s 2022 Grand Finale concert. Her performance as Musetta in Opera North’s La Bohème was described by the Eagle Times as a “a delight… a brilliant soprano delivering her wit with flair.” Currently a second-year Adler Fellow with San Francisco Opera, Rodriguez sang the role of Papagena in Die Zauberflöte, Gianetta in L’elisir d’Amore, made her mainstage debut in Strauss’ Die Frau ohne Schatten, and sang the role of Musetta in the company’s production of Bohème out of the Box. Leading cover roles at SFO include Chrisann Brennan in The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs and Julie in Rhiannon Giddens’ and Michael Abels’ Omar.

Other recent performances include Ask Your Mama, a multimedia work based on poetry by Langston Hughes and originally composed By Laura Karpman for Jessye Norman, and a staged production of Bernstein’s Mass under the baton of Marin Alsop. Other roles include Lauretta in Puccini’s Gianni Schicchi and as Krysia in Jake Heggie’s Two Remain.
