Soprano Ava Pine, a native of Texas, continues to dazzle audiences and critics with her rewarding vocalism and compelling commitment to character, creating vivid and captivating portraits on stage.
Equally at home with opera, oratorio or recital, and accomplished in works ranging from baroque to contemporary, she brings great vocal and dramatic range to her work, as Opera News writes: “Ava Pine...all but stole the show.
By turns seductive, determined, wounded and moved, she sailed sweetly through a vast range of pitches.”
The 2015-2016 season includes debuts with Chicago Opera Theatre as Lucio Cinna in Lucio Silla, Opera Memphis as Pamina in The Magic Flute, her return to the Dallas Symphony for their Christmas Pops Concert, The Young Girl in After Life with UrbanArias, and Krysia in Jake Heggie’s Out of Darkness with Music of Remembrance.
Future seasons include Anna Sørenson in Silent Night with Atlanta Opera and a return to Fort Worth Opera.
The 2014-2015 season included a Messiah with the Dallas Bach Society, a concert with Performance Santa Fe Orchestra, Despina in Florida Grand Opera’s Così fan tutte, a return to Tulsa Opera as Curley’s Wife in Of Mice and Men, and concerts with the Fort Worth Symphony and Bard.
During the 2013-2014 season, Ava returned to Florentine Opera as Cleopatra in Giulio Cesare, to Fort Worth Opera as Anna Sørensen in Puts’ Silent Night, and debuted with Kentucky Opera as Gounod's Juliette and Tulsa Opera as Susanna in Le nozze di Figaro.
On the concert stage, she joined the San Luis Obispo Symphony for Golijov’s Three Songs for Soprano and Orchestra, and returned to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for their annual Christmas Celebration and Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra for Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
