ABOUT THE PERFORMANCE

Angel Blue has emerged in recent seasons as one of the most influential sopranos before the public today. The two-time Grammy Award winner, 2020 Beverly Sills Award recipient, and 2022 Richard Tucker Award winner is celebrated worldwide for her honeyed soprano and affecting deliveries of many of the most beloved roles in the operatic repertory.


Angel Blue has been praised for performances in nearly every major opera house in the world, including Teatro alla Scala, Covent Garden, the Vienna State Opera, and the Metropolitan Opera where she has triumphed in roles as diverse as Violetta in La Traviata, Mimi in La Boheme, Bess in Porgy and Bess, and Destiny/Loneliness/Greta in Terrence Blanchard's Fire Shut Up in My Bones.

For her much-anticipated Parlance debut, Angel Blue and pianist Bryan Wagorn will perform a diverse program cherished songs, arias, and spirituals.
