Critically acclaimed debut as ‘Madama Butterfly’ in Montréal

“Vocals, of course, are the crucial thing. Melody Moore in the title role produced an intensely dramatic sound in the celebrated Act 2 aria. She could also sweeten her tone in lyrical interludes, such as the episode of blossom decoration that underlines so painfully the depth of Butterfly’s faith (and deception) . . . she consistently conveyed the dignity of the character.”

Arthur Kaptainis – Montréal Gazette

“Moore soon had us believing she was Butterfly, with her big controlled sound used sensitively, lyrically and powerfully. She had no trouble breaking our hearts.”
