A native of the Dominican Republic, soprano Carmen Dominguez made her successful operatic debut in 2013, singing the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica with the Teatro de la Opera in Puerto Rico. She has performed at the most important venues in both her home country and Puerto Rico and has been decorated on multiple occasions by the Dominican government for her contributions to health and the arts.
Having performed with the Puerto Rico Symphony Orchestra and Dominican National Symphony Orchestra on several occasions, Dominguez has appeared in productions at the Ópera de Puerto Rico, Opera al Fresco and Puerto Rican Foundation of Zarzuela and Operetta. Roles performed include Madame Lidoine in Dialogue des Carmelites, Aurora in Doña Francisquita, Alice Ford in Falstaff, and Nancy Waters in Albert Herring.
Carmen Dominguez began her musical journey as a violinist in the Dominican Republic’s “El Sistema”, inspired by Venezuela’s acclaimed musical social program. A versatile artist, Dominguez holds both a Master and a Bachelor of Music in Vocal Performance from Puerto Rico’s Conservatory of Music, where she was active as a soloist and graduated with the highest distinctions. She also holds a Medical Degree and is currently pursuing graduate studies in Nonprofit Management as part of her interest in developing platforms for the promotion of the Arts in the Caribbean and Latin America. In 2014, Dominguez became a district winner and a regional finalist of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions.
