"...a warm and dark voice...a radiant and soft soprano sings out...as Mimi" - Leipziger Volkszeitung "The rich soprano sound of Christine Moore caught the ear in the evening's opening numbers from Monteverdi's "Incoronazione di Poppea..." - The New Mexican 'Soprano Christine Moore stood out for lyrical singing of an aria in the "Susannah" title role; for energetic presence and clarity of diction in a scene from Douglas Moore's "The Ballad of Baby Doe" and for striking acting in the "Student Prince" excerpt." - Albuquerque Journal "...a colourful, evocative performance from the chamber ensemble and American soprano Christine Moore...of Schoenberg's Pierrot Lunaire" - The Herald (Glasgow) ***** Praised by the Leipziger Volkszeitung for her 'warm voice' and 'radiant' singing as Mimi with the Leipzig Opera, Sacramento native Christine Moore has performed throughout the United States and in Europe, and is noted for her lush sound and powerful expression.
