Rossini Ermione MoscowA Whirlwind summer of Verdi, Martinu, Mahler, Rossini, and more! Angela Meade’s summer included a “power-house” (Washington Post) performance for the Washington Concert Opera 30th Anniversary Concert, a recital with Performance Santa Fe where Opera Today stated that “When we listen to Meade, we begin to know the sound of golden age singing”, Martinu’s The Epic of Gilgamesh with the Grant Park Music Festival where it was said that her “plush dramatic soprano was made to order for the courtesan’s seductive solo” (Chicago Tribune), Mahler’s 8th Symphony with the NHK Symphony, Rossini’s Ermione with the Russian National Orchestra, and a debut with Madrid’s Teatro Real as Lucrezia Contarini  in Verdi’s I Due Foscari where it was said that “Her voice is especially well suited to the character, with sufficient amplitude and a beautiful timbre.” (Seen and Heard International).

Angela returns to Madrid this fall to bring her acclaimed interpretation of Bellini’s Norma to Teatro Real, then joins Alberto Zedda to make her debuts at the OpĂ©ra de Lyon and Théâtre des Champs-ÉlysĂ©es as the title role in Rossini’s Ermione, and Seville will see her debut in Donizetti’s Anna Bolena with the Teatro de la Maestranza.
