The internationally renowned Metropolitan Opera star Victoria Livengood is a mezzo-soprano whose artistry has been hailed by audiences and critics worldwide for her multifaceted and powerhouse performances in a remarkably varied repertoire. She won immediate attention on the opera scene as a national winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions and went on to make her mark on the opera world with a critically acclaimed Metropolitan Opera début in 1991 as Laura in Luisa Miller under James Levine’s baton. Since then she has become known for her dynamic portrayals in nearly a hundred performances with the prestigious company and has established herself as a "house favorite". Her illustrious career has taken her throughout Europe, South America, Canada and the United States. Her European début took place in 1991 in Idomeneo followed by La clemenza di Tito with the Opéra de Nice. Nevertheless, it is in America that the Thomasville, North Carolinian native primarily bases her career. Much of her schedule is absorbed by her signature rôle of Carmen. She has performed this heroine over 125 times worldwide to much acclaim, recently opposite Placido Domingo. As a devoted recitalist, Victoria Livengood has been hailed at such venues as Carnegie Hall, the Kennedy Center, the Smithsonian Institute, and New York’s Alice Tully Hall. She has been heard in concert in Paris, Venice, Verona, Milan, Kiev, and Odessa as well as in the Caribbean on the Queen Elizabeth II. She has recently been awarded the title of Distinguished Artist in Residence at Jacksonville University in Florida, where she and her husband currently reside.
