A past winner of TDO’s coveted Maria Callas Award, the internationally acclaimed American soprano has previously triumphed as Cio-Cio-San at the Metropolitan Opera, Dresden’s Semperoper (where she has also been heard as Mimi in La bohème), and the Hamburg State Opera. Among her other successes in Puccini have been Liù in Turandot (Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Bilbao), the title role in Tosca (Opera Australia, Opéra de Rouen, upcoming at Austin Opera), and Fidelia in Edgar (Opera Orchestra of New York at Carnegie Hall). Appearances in French roles include Micaëla in Carmen (Bilbao). Moore is also a greatly celebrated Verdian, singing the heroines of Aida (13 major companies worldwide, among them TDO, the Met, Covent Garden, and the Zurich Opera House—as well as at the Ravinia Festival), Don Carlo (Sydney), Ernani and I due Foscari (both in Bilbao), and Macbeth (CD). The soprano has been featured in Porgy and Bess as both Bess (Berlin Philharmonic under Sir Simon Rattle) and Serena (Met, new production). She has appeared with the Vienna Philharmonic (Mahler’s Symphony No. 2, released on CD). She returned to the Metropolitan Opera earlier this season as Serena and also as Billie in Terence Blanchard’s landmark work, Fire Shut Up in My Bones (company premiere).
