Sparkling Stage Presence

        and Her Vocal Beauty...

 Korean-American mezzo-soprano Rachel Moon is known for her unquestionable sparkling stage presence and vocal beauty. She has appeared as a soloist as well as in ensembles on many stages, most notably with The Dallas Opera, Opera Naples, Red River Lyric opera, Opera Breve, the historic opera theater of Cagli in Italy, also including performances in Bass Performance Hall in Fort Worth Texas, as well as with the Irving Symphony Orchestra, and many more. 

This year, continuously singing with the Dallas Opera Chorus, Rachel will be joining the Miami Classical Music Festival as an Apprentice artist performing the role of Le Prince Charmant in Massenet’s Cendrillon this summer. Last summer, Rachel has performed the role of High Priestess in Verdi’s Aida, as well as covering the role of Dorabella in Mozart’s Così fan tutte, and the role of Secretary in Menotti’s The Consul with Spotlight on Opera. 

In 2017-2018, Rachel joined The Dallas Opera’s outreach program as an educational artist covering the role of Despina in Mozart’s Three Little Pigs. The summer of 2017, Rachel has performed with the Red River Lyric Opera where she performed as Musetta in La bohème and covered in Alcina in Alcina, both of which are amongst her most favorite roles. She was inspired to travel to Italy in Europe in 2016 where she performed with Opera in Concert. Later that year she understudied in the role of Violetta in La Traviata at the University of North Texas.

 


 

It was only two years prior to her going to Italy that Rachel began her professional career with Opera Breve where she debuted in the role of Beth in Little Women. She was invited to return to Opera Breve in 2015 where she performed Pamina in Die Zauberflöte. Both roles were well received and drew critical acclaim by her peers of her singing and acting abilities.

 

Rachel was recognized as a person of exceptional talent and was subsequently awarded a full tuition scholarship to Texas Christian University, College of Fine Arts. She studied with J. David Brock and earned her master’s degree in Vocal Performance. Rachel’s bachelor’s degree in Vocal Performance is from the University of North Texas, where she studied with Dr. Stephen F. Austin. With UNT Opera, she performed the roles of Ruggiero in Alcina, Käthchen in Werther, and Cinderella’s Mother in Into the Woods. At Texas Christian University, amongst other performances, she performed the demanding role as Don Elvira in Don Giovanni and Madame Pompous in Too Many Sopranos.
