The presumably last Life Ball will once again be presenting a very special highlight in 2019: The Mexican soprano Neivi Martinez will be offering the audience a special guest an special acoustic as well as a visual spectacle.
Her musical life began at a young age: following her vocal studies at Sonora University in Hermosillo, Mexico and at the University of Music and Drama in Gothenburg, Sweden, she worked for the city theaters in Giessen and Klagenfurt for a total of eleven years. Martinez commutes between different worlds: The classically trained soprano also made numerous appearances in the field of Latin jazz thanks to her musical heritage and vocal versatility.
In addition, Martinez recorded together with the label "The World Music Café" a solo CD titled "Aquanova" and made with a video of the aria "Il Dolce Suono" as part of the TV format "The Stars of tomorrow "by Rolando Villazón as a rising star in the music sky. Among the highlights of her previous engagements in the world of opera include a starring role in Donizetti's "Lucia di Lammermoor" and the role of Gilda in Verdi's "Rigoletto"; In addition, she completed a New Year's concert tour in Korea on the occasion of the last change of the year and made in many cities in the Federal Republic of Germany together with the Frankfurt Symphony Orchestra.
Meanwhile, Martinez found her musical home in the Viennese palaces, whose concerts she accompanied regularly for three years. Every year, the Mexican soprano entertains thousands of people in the stage on the Stephansplatz in the context of the New Year Trail in Vienna and has been a highlight of the Closing Show during the MQ Vienna Fashion Week for three years. In January 2016, Martinez released her self-produced solo album "Semper Libera", which she has already presented in numerous concerts in Mexico, Germany, Austria, and the Balkan conuntries; She is currently working on the release of her new single titled "Whatever Lola Wants", which is planned as a provocative Latin-style performance following this year's most recent Life Ball event.
Last year, Neivi Martinez also founded the innovative artist agency "Amadeus Artists" in order to fulfill her desire for targeted placement of excellent artists from the opera as well as the classical music sector in her daily work. By the way, the agency also offers its protégés other essential services in various areas: the organization of recording programs, digital music distribution and the audio-visual stage design are just a few examples.
