Megan Moore, Mezzo Soprano
Kusel Auditorium, Sleepy Hollow, NY
November 7, 2021, 4 pm
Mezzo-soprano Megan Moore is already making a name for herself as an award-winning opera and concert singer. She has won the prestigious Young Concert Artists International Auditions and the Jensen Foundation Vocal Competition. She has awarded top honors from the Naumburg Foundation International Vocal Competition, the James Toland Vocal Arts Competition, and the Gerda Lissner Lieder & Art Song Competition. Megan just participated in Carnegie Hall’s SongStudio with Renée Fleming in partnership with her frequent collaborator Francesco Barfoed. In summer 2021, she creates the role of Ino in the world premiere of Corigliano and Adamo’s Lord of Cries at Santa Fe Opera.
Acclaimed for her Rossini interpretations, “elegant vocal gymnastics,” and “rapid-fire coloratura”, Megan’s signature roles include Rosina in Il Barbiere di Siviglia and the title role in La Cenerentola. Thwarted by COVID-19 was her debut as an Apprentice Artist with Santa Fe Opera in what would have been her fourth production of Barbiere. She also looks forward to a postponed reprisal of the title role in La Cenerentola with Annapolis Opera. For her recent appearance as Doraballa in Così fan tutte at Juilliard, OperaWire praised her “undeniable sex appeal” and “strength as an actress”.
Megan’s signature vocal agility also shines in baroque repertoire. She recently took on the tour-de-force role of Medea in Handel’s Teseo for COVID-adapted film projects at Juilliard. In recent seasons she was seen in the trouser role of Arsamene in Haymarket Opera Company’s historically-staged production of Serse, as well as in concert performing Purcell and Handel excerpts with the Indianapolis Baroque Orchestra. Equally at home with a long bel canto line, last year she sang the leading role of Costanza in Haydn’s L’isola disabitata with Opera Naples under the baton of Ramon Tebar.
She will be accompanied by pianist Francesco Barfoed.
