Isabella Moore’s Spine-Chilling Performance Lauded

Auckland soprano Isabella Moore’s recent performance in Puccini’s Suor Angelica at Conservatory Concert Hall in San Francisco is highly praised in online music site, San Francisco Classical Voice.

“Moore was the spine-chilling Angelica, her voice cleaving the concert hall, her agony palpably real,” Janos Gereben writes for the Voice. “Puccini’s drama is borderline excessive here; the role tests even a seasoned pro. Here at the Conservatory, Moore, Jasmine Johnson [who plays Angelica’s cruel aunt], and the entire production lived up to standards well beyond academia.”

Moore holds a Bachelor of Music and a Postgraduate Diploma in Voice Performance from the New Zealand School of Music. She is the winner of the 2014 Lexus Song Quest.
