Arizona Opera Cast Members & Creatives


Mattea is a queer black artist based in Tucson who creates what has been described as Sonoran-Soul. She released her first album Body & Soil from her laptop in 2016. Equal parts bougie and the beast, her music is a “schmaltzy rabbit hole of bashful beats and clumsy prose”. She strives to grow a body of work that chips away at the tyrannical empire of white supremacy with a love supreme and a solid grip on the groove.
