Dolora was presented with a commemorative golden anvil by General Manager Peter Gelb at Saturday’s performance of Verdi’s Il Trovatore in which she sings Azucena. She made her Met debut in 1988 in the same role and remains the definitive interpreter of Azucena, having sung it more than any other artist in Met history. Dolora has sung nearly 250 performances of ten roles, including Princess Eboli in Don Carlo, Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana, and Ulrica in Un Ballo in Maschera.

Congratulations, Dolora!
