“As Leila, Carroll brought the music vibrancy, expressiveness and warmth, and her silvery pianissimos may have been the most poetic ingredient in the whole production.”

Hailed by Opera News for her “strong, vibrant soprano” with a “rich, dark low register and gleaming top,” soprano Andrea Carroll begins the 2020-21 season in her company debut with San Diego Opera as Musetta in La bohème. She appears later in the season in her debut at the Wiener Musikverein as soprano soloist in Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9, and returns to Garsington Opera as Adèle in Le comte Ory.
