Grammy-nominated opera star Livengood offers masterclass at Loyola

November 1, 2013

Internationally renowned Metropolitan Opera star and Grammy-nominated mezzo-soprano Victoria Livengood is hailed for her powerhouse performances. On Friday, Nov. 8, the multifaceted singer presents a free masterclass at Loyola University New Orleans.

The event is set for 4:30 p.m. in Nunemaker Auditorium, located in Monroe Hall on Loyola’s main campus.

After winning the 1985 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, the North Carolina native skyrocketed onto the opera scene with her critically acclaimed 1991 Metropolitan Opera debut. Since then, she has become famous for her dynamic portrayals in more than 100 performances with the prestigious company, solidifying herself as a “house favorite.”

Dubbed “Opera’s Dixie Diva,” critics and audiences regularly praise Livengood’s poignant interpretations of a vast repertoire. The New York Times calls her “naturally seductive and vocally alluring.” Opera News declared that “her singing and acting radiate intensity.”
