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/La bohème), and the Hamburg State Opera. Among her other successes in Puccini have been Liù/Turandot (Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Bilbao), the title role/Tosca (Opera Australia, Opéra de Rouen, upcoming at Austin Opera), and Fidelia/Edgar (Opera Orchestra of New York at Carnegie Hall). Appearances in French roles include Micaëla/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 returns to the Metropolitan Opera next season as Serena and also as Billie/Terence Blanchard’s Fire Shut Up in My Bones (company premiere).
