(L-R) ZOE’S RECREATION AND ADELA ZAHARIA AS VIOLETTA IN LA OPERA’S 18/19 SEASON PRODUCTION OF LA TRAVIATA
Name: Zoe Martinez
Opera Activities: Zoe has been an ambassador for the LA Opera 90012 program and has participated in Opera Camp.
Opera Character: Zoe chose to recreate this image of Violetta from La Traviata because she was drawn to her realistic and unforgettable expression in the face of heartbreak. Zoe says, “She draws the observer in.” Zoe adds that she loves the beautiful Art Deco style of LA Opera’s production of La Traviata.
Opera Future: Zoe hopes to one day sing the role of Olympia, the mechanical doll from Offenbach's The Tales of Hoffmann. Zoe says that "Doll Song" is one of her favorite coloratura arias in the entire repertoire. Zoe was in the audience in 2017 when LA Opera performed The Tales of Hoffmann, and she said that it was a dream come true.
