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, Ava 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.”
During the 2013-2014 season, Ava returned to Florentine Opera as Cleopatra in Handel’s 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, returned to the Dallas Symphony Orchestra for their annual Christmas Celebration, as well as Fort Worth Symphony Orchestra for Mendelssohn’s Elijah.
Recognized for her commitment to contemporary opera, Ava made her European debut with the BBC Symphony Orchestra as The Angel in the United Kingdom premiere of Angels in America, a role she first debuted with Fort Worth Opera. Ava spent two seasons with the Dallas Opera as the company’s first young artist in residence, and enjoys a strong relationship with the company, performing Juliette in matinees of Roméo et Juliette, Adele in Die Fledermaus, Elvira in L’italiana in Algeri, Lady in Waiting in Macbeth, Zozo in The Merry Widow, and Yvette in La rondine.
A frequent collaborator with early music ensembles, Ava has performed with Boston Baroque in semi-staged productions of Xerxes, singing Romilda, and Amadigi di Gaula, singing Melissa. Other performances include the title role in Handel’s Theodora with UNT Baroque Collegium; Bellezza in Handel’s Il trionfo del tempo and Cleopatra in Hasse’s Marc’Antonio e Cleopatra, Angelo in Handel’s La resurrezione with Ars Lyrica, and La Musique in Les Arts Florissants with Concert Royal in New York.
