"Queen of the Night Rinnat Moriah sang those two devilish arias with admirable accuracy and energy, hearing her audience exhale noticeably after her high notes."
--- Daniel Webster , Broad Street Review 1.1.06
An avid concert performer and interpreter of modern music, young Israeli Soprano Rinnat Moriah recently sang Berg's Lulu's Suite with the Berliner Staatskapelle. While compeleting her Master's in Opera from the prestigious Curtis Institute of Music in philadelphia, she performed Jacob Druckman's Animus II With the New World Symphony, Mozart's Requiem with the Kansas-City Symphony and Bach’s Wedding Cantata with the Richmond Symphony. In concerts and recitals she sang Elliot Carter’s "A mirror on which to Dwell" (a personal favorite), as well as Poulenc's Gloria, Vivaldi's Gloria, Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, Schubert’s "Der Hirt auf dem Felsen", Brahms’ "Liebesliederwaltzer", Bach’s "Jauchzet Gott" and Mozart’s Mass in c minor.
She recorded the Coloratura Soprano part in Dominick Argento's "Postcard from Morocco", issued under the label of Albany Records.
Ms. Moriah performs regularly with the Scharoun Ensemble of the Berlin Philharmonic, with works by composers Friedrich Goldmann, Sofia Gubaidulina, John Dowland and Luca Mosca.
"Das kleine Latinum", a piece composed especially for her and the Ensemble by Georg Katzer, was premiered in late 2010.
On the opera stages of the Berlin Staatsoper, National theater of Mannheim and the Theater an der Wien, she sang Papagena in "Die Zauberflöte", Giannetta in "l'elisir d'amore" , Barbarina in "Le Nozze di Figaro", and Brigitta in "Iolanta".
Last summer she was Zerbinetta in Strauss’s "Ariadne auf Naxos" in Montepulciano.
At the Rossini Opera Festival in Pesaro she sang "Le Comte Ory", and the Contessa di Folleville in "Il Viaggio a Reims".
She sang Yniold in Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande at the Deutsche Oper, Lucia in Britten's The Rape of Lucretia at the Philadelphia Opera Company and Héro in Berlioz's Béatrice et Bénédict with the Chicago Opera Theater.
In 2012 she will make her La Scala debut, singing Waldvogel in Siegfried, a part she will repeat at the Berlin Staatsoper, under the Baton of Maestro Daniel Barenboim.
