Angela Meade (Dario Acosta)

Angela Meade

Soprano Angela Meade is the winner of the 2011 Richard Tucker Award. Less than four years after her professional debut, she has quickly become recognized as one of the outstanding vocalists of her generation.  She excels in the most demanding heroines of the nineteenth century bel canto repertoire as well as in the operas of Verdi and Mozart. She joined an elite group of history's singers when she made her professional operatic debut on the stage of the Metropolitan Opera as Verdi's Elvira in Ernani substituting for an ill colleague in March 2008. She had previously sung on the Met stage as one of the winners of the 2007 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, a process that is documented in the film The Audition recently released on DVD by Decca.
