Soprano (Susan B. Anthony)

American soprano Felicia Moore has made music in partnership with Alan Gilbert, Anne Manson, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Speranza Scappucci, Gary Wedow, and Brian Zeger, among others. She recently was awarded first place in the James Toland Vocal Arts Competition and named one of the winners of The Sullivan Foundation Competition.

Ms. Moore joins the roster of The Metropolitan Opera in the 2019–20 season as First Lady in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, and returns to Heartbeat Opera for Louisa Proske’s new production of Weber’s Der Freischütz, singing the role of Agathe. She makes her debuts in the title role of Richard Strauss’s Ariadne auf Naxos for Arizona Opera in addition to the role of Susan B. Anthony in Virgil Thomson’s The Mother of Us All, co-presented by the New York Philharmonic, The Metropolitan Museum of Art’s MetLiveArts, and The Juilliard School. On the concert stage she gives performances of the Verdi Requiem with Alexander Shelley and the National Arts Centre Orchestra and Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with Rafael Payare and the San Diego Symphony.

Felicia Moore was awarded a 2018–19 Fellowship by Turn The Spotlight, a foundation created to identify, nurture, and empower leaders — and, in turn, to illuminate the path to a more equitable future in the arts through mentorship by and for exceptional women, people of color, and other equity-seeking groups in the arts. Felicia Moore is a graduate of The Juilliard School, Mannes School of Music, and Westminster Choir College.
