Latonia Moore

"A remarkable voice, wonderful in its amplitude at full throttle, yet also capable of sustaining beautiful, rapt pianissimos. This is one of the finest performances of the role to be heard in London for many years.” - The Guardian on Latonia Moore​ The American soprano Latonia Moore graduated from the Academy of Vocal Arts in Philadelphia in 2005. Already while studying, she won several awards, notably at the 2003 Belvedere Competition in Vienna, the 2003 Concours International d’Opéra in Marseille and the Richard Tucker Foundation Grant in 2005. She made a much acclaimed debut at the Metropolitan Opera in New York in the titlerole of Aida in 2012. Her superb Aida has brought her all over the world to houses like Dallas, Zürich, Sydney and Bergen. In 2016, she was invited back to the Met in the titlerole of Madama Butterfly. Desdemona/Otello marks her role debut and her second visit til Bergen National Opera. Den amerikanske sopranen Latonia Moore ble uteksaminert fra Academy of Vocal Arts i Philadelphia i 2005. Allerede i studietiden vant hun flere utmerkerlser, bl.a. ved Belvedere-konkurransen i Wien i 2003, samme år ved Concours International d’Opéra i Marseille og Richard Tucker Foundation Grant i 2005. Hennes debut som Aida ved Metropolitan Opera i New York i 2012, var sensasjonell. Tittelrollen Aida har siden ført henne over hele verden, bl.a. Dallas, Zürich, Sydney og Bergen. I 2016 ble hun invitert tilbake til The Met i tittelrollen i Madama Butterfly. Desdemona/Otello er hennes rolledebut, og markerer hennes andre besøk ved Bergen Nasjonale Opera.
