American soprano Latonia Moore made an unexpected and triumphant debut at The Metropolitan Opera in March 2012 replacing Violeta Urmana as Aida. Her performance was broadcast on live radio and was received rapturously by the press and public alike. The New York Times reported that ‘she received an ecstatic ovation…her voice was radiant, plush and sizable at its best, with gleaming top notes that broke through the chorus and orchestra during the crowd scenes…Moore has enormous potential.’
Particularly associated with this role, she has gone on to sing Aida with great success at Covent Garden; the Opernhaus Zurich; Opera Australia; the New National Theatre in Tokyo; the Dallas, San Diego, Cincinnati, Pittsburgh and Detroit Operas and at the Ravinia Festival with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra under James Conlon.
In the 2014/15 season she returns to the Openhaus Zurich and to Opera Australia for further performances of Aida, and she returns to the Dallas Opera to sing the title role in La Wally. The future also includes returns to the San Diego and Metropolitan Operas.
