At four years old, Arianna made the startling announcement that she wanted to be a singer and an actress on the stage.

Self taught until age 13, Arianna sang whenever and wherever she could, starting with church solos, and moving on to school and local talent competitions. She made her musical theatre debut at 14 as a Mission Doll in the Redlands Bowl production of Guys and Dolls.

Other shows quickly followed, including Into the Woods, A Little Night Music, and The Sound of Music. At age sixteen, she landed her first professional role, playing Mabel in Pirates of Penzance.

While her first love has always been musical theater, Arianna soon began developing a cabaret act, first opening for such luminaries as The Drifters and Josh Groban, then in her own one-woman show, 5 Octaves Off Broadway, which she performed in all over Southern and Central California in intimate venues such as the famed Cinegrill in the Hollywood Roosevelt Hotel.

In 2004, Arianna was invited to study opera in Milan, Italy at the Scuola Musicale di Milano, where she was the only American student, and studied with teachers from La Scala Opera House.

From there, it was on to the International Gilbert and Sullivan Festival in the Buxton Opera house in Buxton, England, where she performed in the title role of Patience in the Gilbert and Sullivan operetta, and coached with legendary soprano Valerie Masterson in preparation for reprising her role as Mabel in a concert performance of Pirates of Penzance.

After a brief visit with family in California, she was off to Bangkok, Thailand, then New York City for more singing and performing.

Arianna lives in New York City where she continues to pursue her dreams. She is grateful for the wonderful and supportive people in her life, and is excited for future projects.
