Angel Blue


Angel Blue has established herself as one of the most important sopranos before the public today. She opened the Metropolitan Opera’s 2019/2020 season as Bess in a new production of George Gershwin’s Porgy and Bess, which she reprised at the Met in Fall 2021; this production immediately followed her triumphant role debut as Destiny/Loneliness/Greta in the Met’s historic 2021/22 season opener of Fire Shut Up In My Bones, the first production at the Metropolitan Opera by a Black composer. Additionally, she was the 2020 recipient of the Met’s prestigious Beverly Sills Award.

This season includes a stunning range of repertoire which highlights her immense versatility and virtuosity on operatic and concert stages internationally. Following her return to the Metropolitan Opera with back-to-back productions, La Traviata will play a prominent role in Ms. Blue’s performance calendar in 2021/22 with productions at the Royal Opera House and Arena di Verona. In Summer 2022, she will sing the role of Marguerite in Faust at Opéra national de Paris. Highlights of Ms. Blue’s recital and concert engagements include Knoxville: Summer of 1915 with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin, including one night at Carnegie Hall, and performances of Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 with the Dallas Symphony Orchestra conducted by Fabio Luisi.
