"In music you can feel so much and just let go –
and you do"

Martina Arroyo


Martina Arroyo, a pioneer among African-American performers in the operatic field, is considered one of opera's most effective public ambassadors, from her three-decade performing career to her ongoing involvement in the Arroyo Foundation. As you will see in our conversation, this is not least due to what World Biography called her “down-to-earth sense of humor, coupled with a diva-sized personality.” Enjoy her unique reminiscences of working with legends Renata Tebaldi, Leonard Bernstein, and Victor Borge!
