Noted by The Wall Street Journal for her “opulent, Wagner-scaled soprano” and acclaimed by The New York Times as the “lustrous, commanding soprano,” Felicia Moore is recognized by Opera News as “a genuine jugendliche dramatische soprano of exciting potential (and present accomplishment).” She is a powerful and innovative artist having made music in partnership with Alan Gilbert, Anne Manson, Sir Donald Runnicles, Ken-David Masur, Yannick Nézet-Séguin, Susanna Mälkki, Rafael Payare, Speranza Scappucci, Alexander Shelley, Evan Rogister, Gary Thor Wedow, Ryan Wigglesworth, and Brian Zeger among others.
