Heidi Melton

This season, American dramatic soprano Heidi Melton returns to the New York Philharmonic for Act I of Wagner’s Die Walküre and to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra to sing Brünnhilde in complete performances of the opera, both conducted by Jaap van Zweden. She recently made her role debut as Brünnhilde in new productions of Wagner’s Die Walküre, Siegfried, and Götterdämmerung at Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe; made debuts with the London Symphony Orchestra and Berlin Philharmonic in Ligeti’s Le Grand Macabre under Simon Rattle; and returned to Vienna for Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 with the Tonkunstler Orchestra conducted by Andrés Orozco-Estrada. She appeared as Sieglinde in Die Walküre and Brünnhilde in Siegfried in concert performances with Jaap van Zweden and the Hong Kong Philharmonic recorded for Naxos Records, and in the summer of 2017 she recorded the role of Isolde in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra. Ms. Melton recently made her Vienna Philharmonic debut singing Brünnhilde’s “Immolation Scene” from Götterdämmerung led by Mr. Gergiev at Vienna’s Musikverein and Carnegie Hall. She returned to the Deutsche Oper Berlin as Venus / Elisabeth in Wagner’s Tannhäuser with Donald Runnicles; she made her role debut as Isolde at Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe in a new Christopher Alden production conducted by Justin Brown, and reprised the role in her English National Opera debut in a new production conducted by Edward Gardner.
