Biography

Cristina Bakhoum Sanchez is a vibrant soprano who credits her love and natural ear for languages to her exotic background of Egyptian and Mexican parents.

Cristina is a proven standout performer celebrated equally for her powerful voice and dynamic character portrayals.

In 2021, she had the honor of performing again and was featured with Mobile Opera starring in their Winter Opera Gala alongside talented baritone, Corey McKern. In January 2020, under the direction of acclaimed, brilliant director Jennifer Williams, Cristina starred in the first ever staged production of Richard Strauss’ beloved Vier letzte Lieder. Performed in New York City, the interactive, multimedia experience, highlighted the future of immersive theater and Cristina’s exquisite talent.

During the 2018-2019 season, Cristina performed a career highlight portraying Mimì in Puccini’s La Bohème with Indianapolis Opera, which were both a role and company debut for her. Her interpretation of Mimì was hailed as “remarkably expressive” (Nuvo Indy’s Alternative Voice) and “splendid…not just from the standpoint of her powerful vocal performance, but also her heartbreaking portrayal of tragic Mimì” (On the Aisle-Indianapolis). She has since reprised the iconic role of Mimì with First Coast Opera in St. Augustine, Florida.

Some previous roles include: Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia, Dorabella in Cosí fan tutte, La Suora Zelatrice in Suor Angelica, Flora in La Traviata, Fermina in Man of la Mancha, Amante in Don Quichotte chez la Duchesse, and Pitti-Sing in The Mikado.
“Bakhoum Sanchez’s formidable talent and stage presence are of such high caliber that her future in opera portends great success”.
