“Amazingly agile high soprano” Jennie Moser appeared most recently as Zerbinetta in Ariadne auf Naxos with Indiana University Opera Theater under the baton of Arthur Fagen. This fall, she will perform the role of Gretel in Hänsel und Gretel under the direction of Michael Shell. Other credits with Indiana University include Niece 1 in Peter Grimes and the soprano soloist in Mendelssohn’s Psalm 42.
Hänsel und Gretel
"Amazingly agile high soprano Jennie Moser maneuvered brilliantly through Strauss’ 12-minute bombardment of sky-high notes that make up Zerbinetta’s 'get-over-your-sorrows-and-live' advice aria for Ariadne, among the most difficult vocal displays ever written."
