Angela Meade returns to the Metropolitan Opera in one of her signature roles, Leonora in Il Trovatore, through February 13th.
“One of the primary reasons to see Il Trovatore before the end of the month is to get a glimpse of the female lead—Angela Meade. Arguably the best young American soprano. This role provides her with an excellent opportunity to show her abilities–including the wonderful color of her voice and an outstanding high register. Meade’s talent alone should bring you into the opera house to see Il Trovatore.” NY Sports Day.
Performances of David McVicar’s production continue on February 9th & 13th under the baton of Marco Armiliato. Find tickets to Il Trovatore and more information here.
Angela Meade rang in the New Year with a “masterful evening of operatic works (that) brought the audience to their feet on multiple occasions” (Philadelphia Magazine) with Yannick Nezet-Seguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra. “If you heard some vocal fireworks before midnight on New Year’s Eve, it was Angela Meade at Kimmel Center’s Verizon Hall. The remarkable soprano was in absolute breathtaking form as she returned to the ensemble for her first ever December 31st gala.”
Angela Meade “made a formidable Norma” (Orange County Register) at Los Angeles Opera’s opening night performance of the Bellini tragedy on November 21. “A sturdy, powerful soprano with exacting control, Angela Meade offers a textbook example of how to handle every nuance of Bellini’s exquisite melodic writing for his title character,” praised the Los Angeles Times, continuing in a description of Angela’s performances opposite castmate Jamie Barton’s Adalgisa that “the Meade-Barton amalgam is a sound so stunning that in the audience Saturday there were laughs of pure pleasure.” “She’s got a big, lyric voice that can rise above fortissimo climaxes, yet remains nimble and supple enough for the graceful singing and pianissimo point required in bel canto,” said the Orange County Register.
Performances of Anne Bogart’s production continue on November 29 as well as December 2, 5, 10, and 13, under the baton of James Conlon. Find tickets to Norma and more information here.
