Ben Moore

The music of American composer Ben Moore has been performed by many leading singers including Deborah Voigt, Susan Graham, Frederica von Stade, Lawrence Brownlee, Nathan Gunn and Audra McDonald. His work has been called “brilliant” and “gorgeously lyrical” by the New York Times while Opera News has praised the “easy tunefulness” and “romantic sweep” of his songs. In addition to Odyssey, he has composed two operas: Enemies, a Love Story for Palm Beach Opera in 2015, to appear at Kentucky Opera in 2018, and youth opera Robin Hood for the 2017 Glimmerglass Festival, to appear at Seattle Opera in 2018. He is also a composer of art songs, musical theatre, cabaret, and other genres, and his music has been heard at Carnegie Hall, The Metropolitan Opera and Wigmore Hall in London.  Next year Ben’s song cycle “Ode to a Nightingale” will be heard at Alice Tully Hall and his choral work “The Wave Rises,” will premiere in a concert by the New Amsterdam Singers.
