Vocal Arts DC presents
Angel blue, soprano, with Catherine Miller, piano


A native of California who honed her craft in Germany and Austria, soprano Angel Blue took New York audiences by storm in the late autumn of 2017 when she made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Mimi in La bohème. She returns this season to the Met and also makes her debut at London's Royal Opera House Covent Garden. Her Washington debut in a solo recital, accompanied by pianist Catherine Miller, features  selections by W.A. Mozart, Richard Strauss, Sergei Rachmaninoff, Jake Heggie, and Bruce Adolphe, as well as zarzuela arias and arrangements of spirituals.

Performance Timing: Part One - 35 min.; Intermission - 20 min.; Part Two - 32 min.

"She offers a voice of pure cream, shimmering and rich throughout her range and sheerly voluptuous from pianissimo to fortissimo ... The soprano didn't do anything overt to attract the audience; rather, the audience were magnetized to her by their own fascination." (New York Observer)
