Acclaimed Costa Rican soprano, Ivette Ortiz has been praised for her powerful voice, charisma, and passion on stage. She has sung frequently with La Compañía Lírica Nacional de Costa Rica, appearing as Donna Anna in Don Giovanni, Adina in L’Elisir d’Amore, Elvira in L’Italiana in Algeri, and Frasquita in Carmen to name a few.
