In the 2020/21 season, Ms. Rowley added another Verdi role to her growing list of repertoire, marking her role and house debut as Amelia in Andreas Homoki’s new production of Simon Boccanegra at Opernhaus Zürich. Her debut garnered international acclaim, with Opera News praising her “solid, commanding Amelia.” The opening night performance was streamed live from Zürich and later released on DVD in 2021. In addition, she sang her signature role of Tosca for her greatly anticipated house debut at Opéra de Marseille, with Ôlyrix calling her performance of “Vissi d’arte” “one of the most beautiful lyrical moments of this Marseille season.”
The following performances were unfortunately canceled due to the global pandemic: the title role of Tosca and Musetta in La Bohème at the Metropolitan Opera; her house debut at Dallas Opera as Tosca; Aida at Opéra National de Paris; and her house and role debut at Opera Australia as Elizabeth I in Donizetti’s Roberto Devereux.
