She has received awards from the Met’s National Council Auditions, the Licia Albanese–Puccini Foundation Vocal Competition, the Palm Beach Opera Vocal Competition, and the Dallas Opera Guild Competition.

Ginger Costa-Jackson (mezzo-soprano) is a graduate of the Met’s Lindemann Young Artist Development Program and a Samling Scholar. She made her Met debut in the Opening Night Gala of the 2008–09 season and has since appeared in the Met premiere of Nixon in China, new productions of Thaïs and Manon, and in Cavalleria Rusticana, Lulu, La Fanciulla del West, Carmen, and Francesca da Rimini. Next season, she will appear in Xavier Montsalvatge’s El Gato con Botas with Gotham Chamber Opera in New York and return to the Met as Lola in a new production of Cavalleria Rusticana.
