Angel Joy Blue:
Ms. Blue, a 32-year-old lyric soprano, is a California native with a flourishing career in Europe, where she has been praised for her interpretations of roles including Mimì and Musetta in “La Bohème.” A protégée of Plácido Domingo, she is also a regular presenter for the BBC.
For the Met, as part of the opening concert for the annual Summer Recital Series, she did her best to make her performance memorable, flirtatiously tossing flowers into the audience as she sang her encore, a zarzuela selection. (She will make her main-stage debut during an unspecified future season.)
