Melody Moore

Text in englischer Sprache verfügbar
Soprano Melody Moore has been a fixture of American operatic stages and has also been heard in Europe. Her repertory ranges from Mozart to music of the present day, but her powerful voice is especially well suited to operas of the late 19th century. Moore was born in Dyersburg, Tennessee, in the early 1970s. Her father was an Assemblies of God minister. Moore grew up in a Pentecostal church, where she participated in choral music but had no exposure to classical music. The family moved to Houston, Texas, and Moore auditioned for the Kingwood High School Choir. The choir director recognized her talent and gave her music to learn for a Texas all-state choral competition; she eventually reached the rank of second chair in the Texas All-State Choir. After graduating in 1990, Moore earned a scholarship to Louisiana State University, where she would check out opera videos nightly from the music library. She joined the Baton Rouge Opera as a lighting assistant and then had the chance to perform in a production of Britten's The Rape of Lucretia. Warming to the idea of an operatic career, she transferred to Loyola University in New Orleans, but her development was interrupted for four years after her father's suicide. She returned to voice studies at Kent State University in Ohio, where she studied with James Mismas and graduated summa cum laude and then attended the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music for further study. In 2005, Moore joined the San Francisco Opera's Merola Program and then became an Adler Fellow with the company. She took up residence in San Francisco and has performed several times with the company in major roles. Moore is one of the few openly gay singers at the highest levels of opera. Moore scored a major breakthrough in 2012 when she substituted mid-performance for an ailing Angela Gheorghiu at the San Francisco Opera. She has appeared with many of the top American opera companies, including the Houston Grand Opera (several times, including in a production of Jerome Kern's Show Boat), the Los Angeles Opera, and the Washington National Opera. She has sung at the Naples Opera in Italy and has also appeared in Romania, Portugal, and South Korea. Moore has a large repertory of concert works, including the Sea Symphony of Ralph Vaughan Williams, which she was slated to sing with the Oregon Symphony in 2020. Moore records for the PentaTone label, where she has several operatic credits, and where she released her solo debut, An American Song Album, in 2019. In 2021, Moore was heard as Minnie on a PentaTone recording of Puccini's La fanciulla del West.
