Grammy-nominated mezzo-soprano Margaret Lattimore has been praised for her “glorious instrument” and dubbed an “undisputed star…who has it all – looks, intelligence, musicianship, personality, technique, and a voice of bewitching amber color,” by the Boston Globe. While she began her career singing the florid works of Händel, Rossini, and Mozart, Ms. Lattimore expanded her repertoire in recent seasons to include the works of Mahler, Verdi and Wagner, making her one of the most versatile mezzo-sopranos performing today.
Upcoming performances for Ms. Lattimore include Beggar Woman in Sweeney Todd with Michigan Opera Theater and Aunt Hannah in Emmeline with Tulsa Opera. Recently, Ms. Lattimore reprised the role of Mrs. De Rocher in Dead Man Walking with Opera on the Avalon, sang Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with Pacific Symphony, Costa Rica National Symphony, and Bozeman Symphony, and returned to The Metropolitan Opera for Iolanta, Les contes d’Hoffmann, The Exterminating Angel, The Merry Widow, and Romeo et Juliette. She also performed the role of Filipyevna in Eugene Onegin with the Canadian Opera Company, performed Bianca in The Rape of Lucretia with Boston Lyric Opera, and sang Verdi’s Requiem with the National Philharmonic at the Kennedy Center, as well as Mahler’s Symphony No. 2 with the Sheboygan Symphony and Springfield Symphony. She made her Metropolitan Opera début as Dorotea in Stiffelio with Plácido Domingo and later appeared in the PBS Great Performances broadcasts of Stiffelio and Madama Butterfly.
