The soprano Angela Meade, who is back at Oper Frankfurt to sing the title role in Adriana Lecouvreur (role debut), made her house debut in 2014, singing Fidelia in concert performances of Puccini's Edgar. This American artist, whose many awards have included the Beverly Sills Artist Award and Richard Tucker Award, is one of the most sought-after singers of her generation, predominantly in Verdi and Mozart roles and bel canto repertoire. Angela Meade can be heard again soon at the Metropolitan Opera, where she has appeared regularly for ten years, as Rossini's Semiramide, Bellini's Norma, Mozart's Donna Anna in Don Giovanni and, next season, her first Margherita in Mefistofele. Other forthcoming engagements include Alice Ford (Falstaff) at Dallas Opera and Leonora (Il trovatore) at Seattle Opera. She appears regularly at other leading American opera companies, including Los Angeles Opera, Washington National Opera and Houston Grand Opera. Theatres where she has performed in Europe have included the Vienna State Opera, the Deutsche Oper Berlin, Théâtre des Champs-Élysées in Paris, the Opéra de Lyon, Teatro Regio in Turin and Teatro Real in Madrid. Angela Meade also enjoys a busy concert career, recently appearing with the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, the Philadelphia Orchestra, Seattle Symphony, the Rotterdam Philharmonic Orchestra, NHL Symphony and BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra.
