Felicia Moore, Soprano
Noted by The Wall Street Journal for her “opulent, Wagner-scaled soprano” and acclaimed by The New York Times as the “lustrous, commanding soprano,” Felicia Moore is recognized by Opera News as “a genuine jugendliche dramatische soprano of exciting potential (and present accomplishment).” She is a powerful and innovative artist having made music in partnership with Alan Gilbert, Anne Manson, Sir Donald Runnicles, Ken-David Masur, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Susanna Mälkki, Rafael Payare, Speranza Scappucci, Alexander Shelley, Evan Rogister, Gary Thor Wedow, Ryan Wigglesworth, and Brian Zeger among others.
Highlights of the 2023-24 season include a debut at Deutsche Oper Berlin in the company’s first revival of Stefan Herheim’s Ring Cycle with performances led both by Sir Donald Runnicles and Nicholas Carter; she appears in Die Walküre as Gerhilde, while covering Sieglinde, and bows in Götterdämmerung as the Third Norn and Gutrune. Other appearances include a Metropolitan Opera company premiere of Anthony Davis’ groundbreaking and influential opera, X: The Life and Times of Malcolm X in a new production by the theater luminary and Tony-nominated director of Slave Play, Robert O’Hara, and a revival of Nabucco under the baton of Daniele Callegari. Ms. Moore is welcomed by the American Symphony Orchestra for Schoenberg’s Gurre-Lieder at Carnegie Hall under the direction of Leon Botstein, and she returns to the Lakes Area Music Festival for the “Liebestod” from Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde with Music Director Christian Reif. Ms. Moore is a proud alumna of The Juilliard School, Mannes School of Music, and Westminster Choir College.
