Millicent Jordan, Dinner at Eight
October/November 2018
Wexford Opera (festival debut)

“It succeeds primarily thanks to a vintage acting performance by Mary Dunleavy.” - The Sunday Times of London

Alice Ford, Falstaff
June/July 2018
Garsington Opera

“Alice Ford is sung and played with exquisite sound and wit by Mary Dunleavy.” – Town and Country

Alice Ford, Falstaff (role debut)
February 2018
Opera Omaha

“Mary Dunleavy looked great and sounded even better. Her voice remained pristine, supple and effortless throughout the evening, suggesting that she could sing for another five hours before showing any sign of stress or fatigue.” – Opera News

Stepmother, Alma Deutscher's Cinderella (role debut)
December 2017
Opera San José (company debut)

“The cruelty of Mary Dunleavy’s Stepmother was almost unbearable. Dunleavy’s clear soprano could switch instantaneously from hypocritical syrup to a full-throated shriek. The Stepmother’s rage-filled coloratura passages were part of the opera’s self-referential satire; Dunleavy furled them out with power and precision.” – The New Criterion


Mary is currently covering the roles of Violetta in La Traviata and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni during the 2018 - 2019 season at the Metropolitan Opera.
