When Melody Moore made her début in London at the English National Opera during the 2008-2009 season as Mimi in Puccini’s La bohème, she was widely acclaimed for her magnificent voice. Subsequently, she was reinvited to sing the role of Marguerite in Gounod’s Faust.
However, as a graduate of the Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music and a 2007 San Francisco Opera Adler Fellow, the young soprano made her first career moves in her native America. Major performances in the U.S.A. have included the Countess in Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro in Los Angeles, the title role in Puccini’s Suor Angelica at the Orlando Opera, and Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni with the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra. At the New York City Opera, she sang in a contemporary opera, Séance on a Wet Afternoon, by Stephen Schwartz.
Melody Moore has collaborated with renowned conductors such as Kent Nagano and Donald Runnicles.
