Noted for her gleaming vocalism (OPERA NEWS), mezzo-soprano Renée Tatum is an incredibly important artist of her generation.

Noted for her “gleaming vocalism” (Opera News), mezzo-soprano Renée Tatum is an incredibly important artist of her generation. The 2019-20 begins as Flosshilde in Wagner’s Götterdammerung with The National Taichung Theater in Taiwan, followed by her role debut as Kundry in Parsifal, under the baton of Maestro Arthur Fagen. Ms. Tatum then returns to the Metropolitan Opera as Dritte Dame in The Magic Flute and sings Azucena in Il Trovatore with Pensacola Opera. She also joins the South Bend Symphony as the alto soloist in Mahler’s Second Symphony, sings Beethoven’s Missa Solemnis with The Masterworks Chorale, and ends the season as Cornelia in Giulio Cesare with The Boston Lyric Opera.

Last season, Ms. Tatum sang in Nico Muhly’s Marnie at the Metropolitan Opera, followed by her debut with The Philadelphia Orchestra as the Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors. Ms. Tatum also returned to the Metropolitan Opera as Waltraute and Flosshilde in Der Ring des Nibelugen, under the baton of Philipe Jordan. She sang Brahms’ Alto Rhapsody with the Cecilia Chorus at Carnegie Hall, was the alto soloist in Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony with The Philadelphia Orchestra under the baton of Yannick Nézet-Séguin, and closed the season as Waltraute in Die Walkürie with The Boston Symphony Orchestra.
