During the past several seasons, she has appeared at The Metropolitan Opera as Roxanne in Cyrano de Bergerac, the title roles of Tosca and Adriana Lecouvreur, Leonora in Il Trovatore, and Musetta in La Bohème, at Opernhaus Zurich and Opera Philadelphia as Amelia Grimaldi in Simon Boccanegra, Teatro del Liceu in Barcelona in the title role of Aida, Teatro Regio Torino as Minnie in La Fanciulla del West, Teatro Carlo Felice and Palm Beach Opera as the title character in Manama Butterfly, Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, Staatsoper Berlin and Opera National de Paris in her signature role of Leonora in Il Trovatore, the National Theatre Prague as Amelia in Un Ballo in Maschera, and the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden as Musetta, among many others. 


As an avid mentor to young artists, Ms. Rowley holds an annual Artist in Residence position at her alma matter, Baldwin Wallace University Conservatory of Music, and has held residencies with Fort Worth Opera, Shreveport Opera, the International Summer Opera Festival of Morelia, and the Vienna Summer Music Festival. Ms. Rowley is highly sought after for her masterclass and seminar series and has been invited as a guest lecturer and master teacher for young artist programs and universities nationwide. This mentorship and joy for developing the next generation of operatic artists led her to create “Jennifer Rowley’s Aria Bootcamp.”
