Marina Rebeka


Marina Rebeka was born in Latvia in 1980 and studied in Rome at the Conservatorio di Santa Cecilia and in Pesaro at the Accademia Rossiniana; she has described Rossini as her ‘destiny-composer’, due to the number of significant debuts she has made in his music (her first professional leading role was in Maometto II at Pesaro, her Salzburg festival debut in Moïse et Pharaon, and her first recording was the Petite Messe Solennelle with Antonio Pappano on Warner Classics). Rebeka’s repertoire also includes Violetta in La Traviata, Donna Anna and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Marguerite in Gounod’s Faust, and the title-role in Bellini’s Norma, which she sang to great acclaim at the Metropolitan Opera in 2017.
