She rounds out the season with another house debut as Mercédès and covering the title role in Bizet’s famous opera, Carmen, at TBA.  In the competition circuit, she advances as a Finalist in the Concorso Internazionale di Canto Lirico “Vano Visioli”(ongoing) and as a Semi-Finalist in the Vincerò World Singing Competition (ongoing.)

The 2022/2023 season included a Carnegie Hall debut and role debuts as Dritte Dame in Die Zauberflöte with Washington Opera Society and Isabella (cover with performance) in L'Italiana in Algeri at St Petersburg Opera Company. Ms. Rosales also appeared as the Alto Soloist in Handel’s Messiah with the choir and orchestra of NYC’s Madison Avenue Baptist Church and advanced as a National Semi-finalist in the prestigious Loren L. Zachary Competition.

In the 2021/2022 season, Ms. Rosales reprised two of her signature roles, Carmen (title role, Hispanic Heritage Month at New York Public Library) and Suzuki (Madama Butterfly, Opera West).

She then returned to Opera San José where she debuted as Consuelo in West Side Story and went on to make her Mainstage debut at Charlottesville Opera, singing Sister Berthe in The Sound of Music and Olga in The Merry Widow.
