The soprano has sang with every important company and has conquered numerous roles including Verdi’s “la Traviata,” Marguerite in Gounod’s “Faust” Amelia in Verdi’s “Simon Boccanegra” and Mimi in “La Boheme.” Most recently she has made Puccini’s “Tosca” a signature as well as Cilea’s “Adriana Lecouvreur.” This season she is scheduled to perform “Tosca” in the Vienna State Opera and will make debuts at the Teatro Massimo di Palermo and Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires in the title role of “Adriana Lecouvreur.”

Vargas returns to the Metropolitan Opera for Mozart’s “Don Giovanni” before making a role debut in Rimsky Korsakov’s “The Snowmaiden at the Paris National Opera.
