Bass-Baritone Andrew Moore, is excited to be returning to the Zürich Opera’s International Opera Studio for their 2021/22 season. A New Jersey native, Andrew has been seen performing in various venues around the world. His previous credits include the leading role of Odysseus in the world premiere of Die Odyssee, and as Le Gouverneur in Rossini’s Le Comte Ory. Jan Krobot from The Online Merker wrote: “The surprise of the evening is Andrew Moore as Le Gouverneur. With his wonderfully deep bass-baritone sound that carries throughout the house, he gives shape to his interpretation as if he had been there since the premiere.”
Other credits include Mamma Agatha in Donizetti´s Viva la Mamma (May 2021) where Thomas Schacher from NEUE ZÜCHER ZEITUNG wrote: “…Andrew Moore captivates with a voluminous baritone voice and realizes the «rock role» of Mamma Agata – a rare counterpart to the much more common travesty of the trouser role – in all its ambiguity.”Read more
In 2020, Andrew performed as Vicar Gedge, in the Curits Institute of Music’s Albert Herring. David Shengold from OPERA NEWS wrote, “…baritone Andrew Moore gave an extremely polished performance as unctuous Vicar Gedge.” More of Andrew’s past credits include: Fiorello (Il barbiere di Siviglia), the title role in Gianni Schicchi, Talpa (Il Tabarro), the title role in Le Nozze di Figaro, Guglielmo (Cosi fan Tutte) Rocco (Fidelio), L’Arbre (L’enfant et les sortilèges), the Keeper (The Rake’s Progress), and Adonis (Venus and Adonis). In 2018, Andrew attended the Merola Opera Program in San Francisco, where he participated in the Schwabacher Summer Concert and Stravinsky’s The Rake’s Progress. Phillip Campbell from The Bay Area Reporter wrote, “… bass-baritone Andrew Moore still managed to alert us to an exceptionally even and rich voice”.
In March of 2017, Andrew was a finalist in the New Jersey state Opera Alfredo Silipigni Competition. That same year, he premiered with the New Jersey Chamber Singers as the baritone soloist in their Faure Requiem concert and album. In early 2019, Andrew entered the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, where he placed in the New England Region Finals, and received the Susan Eastman Encouragement Award.
