Like many artists in the UK, Ms Fontanals-Simmons has had all of her work since March 2020 cancelled due to COVID-19 and the subsequent closure of many of the world's theatres and concert halls. However, she has been grateful for a number of online projects that have kept her going mentally, artistically and vocally during the lockdown. Please see the new page ONLINE PROJECTS to see what she has been up to.
This Season, Marta makes her debut at Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona, performing in George Benjamin's critically acclaimed Lessons in Love and VIolence. She will reprise the role with a return to Teatro Real, Madrid later in the season. Marta is delighted to perform the role of Miranda in Thomas Ades The Tempest at Barbican Hall, London, conducted by the composer and with the Britten Sinfonia. On the concert and recital platform, Marta will perform Wagner Wesendonck-Lieder at the Leman Lyriques Festival, Geneva, give a recital with Roger Vignoles at Fundacion Juan March, Madrid and is delighted to return to the Oxford Lieder Festival and Auditorio de Tenerife.
