Marci Jackson |Queen Guenevere
Marci was thrilled to be on stage in Indianapolis in the recent production of Man of La Mancha. “The song ‘I'm Only Thinking of Him,’ well brought off in this production (especially by Marci Jackson as the niece Antonia), clearly invites us to examine the social pressure to conform — even in our own distracted times.” –Jay Harvey
The Muncie Star Press praised her portrayal of Donna Anna in Don Giovanni as “Brilliant…let it be known, this woman can sing.”
Recently, she has been seen in the Midwest premiere of She, After, an opera triptych by Daniel Felsenfeld. In the 2012-2013 season she made her role and company debut with Center Stage Opera as the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica, and later joined both Candid Concert Opera in their production of Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte, singing the role of Zwiete Dame and New Rochelle Opera as Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana.
Previously, Marci performed Santuzza with Lafayette Symphony Orchestra and was hailed as “a gorgeous soprano whose every note was in line with the legato aria ‘Voi lo sapete, o mamma,’ her acting ability was intense.” (Lafayette Journal and Courier)
Past engagements include performances with Sugar Creek Symphony and Song as the Countess in Le nozze di Figaro, covering Tosca with Opera Las Vegas and Susannah with Des Moines Metro Opera.
A champion of new works, Marci has debuted pieces by new composers. She performed a song cycle written for her by Daniel McIntosh entitled Songs of Innocence. She also gave the world premiere of the cantata Madres, words and music by Brazilian composer Luciana Mendes-Schulle.
Marci makes her home here in Indianapolis with her husband, Michael and two children Henry and Alice.
