Hailed by the New York Times for her “attractive soprano voice,” and for having “total control of the stage,” (Broadway World) coloratura soprano Meghan Picerno is hailed for her exciting, crowd- pleasing performances in opera, theatre, and on concert stages throughout the world. Picerno took national audiences by storm as Christine in the US Premiere and 1st National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies. Her portrayal of Christine had critics in awe, “Picerno, however, steals the show with her hypnotic, operatic voice and her expert depiction of Christine’s inner turmoil. Her impeccable vocal performance carries the climax of the production, in which Christine must choose between Raoul and the Phantom...Picerno’s high notes, exuding operatic flare, soar to the mezzanine level of the theater and beyond.” This led to a special invitation from Andrew Lloyd Webber to perform on the ITV television broadcast of the Classic BRIT Awards in 2018 and as a special guest at LIVE AT CHELSEA honoring his milestone birthday. After finishing Love Never Dies, Picerno embarked on new World Tour of The Phantom of the Opera, making her début in the beloved musical. Watch for her Broadway début coming October of 2019!
Ms. Picerno’s star began to rise after her first collaboration with legendary director Hal Prince as Cunegonde in his new production of Candide at New York City Opera. Of her performance, Huffington Post hailed: “The real beauty of the evening was Meghan Picerno, clear of voice and crisp of diction, who managed the challenging ‘Glitter and Be Gay’ with aplomb.” Quickly becoming one of the most sought-after Cungeondes in the world, Picerno reprised the role at San Francisco Symphony (led by Michael Tilson Thomas), Princeton Symphony, and the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.
