Heidi Offer Murphy distinguished herself as a solid and promising brand-new American singer in the first ’90s. She began monitoring voice at Traditional western Washington College or university, and continued on the Indiana College or university College of Music in Bloomington, IN, being a graduate pupil. While seeking those research, she moved into the Metropolitan Opera Country wide Council Auditions. When she was called successful, she still left Bloomington to enter the Metropolitan Opera’s Youthful Artist Development Plan. She produced her Metropolitan Opera debut in 1989 in Richard Strauss’ Die Frau ohne Schatten. Since that time, she has made an appearance for the Met stage as Sophie in Strauss’ Der Rosenkavalier, Nanetta in Verdi’s Falstaff, Ilia in Mozart’s Idomeneo, Pamina in his Magic Flute, Susanna in his Relationship of Figaro, and Sister Constance in Poulenc’s Dialogues from the Carmelites. She often sings on the Salzburg Celebration. Aside from the Met, she’s appeared using the Frankfurt Opera, Netherlands Opera, Santa Fe Opera, with Theater Royale de la Monnaie, and with main American symphony orchestras. She sang the soprano function in the globe premiere of David Del Tredici’s The Spider as well as the Soar with Kurt Masur and the brand new York Philharmonic and in Saariaho’s Chateau de l’ame with Kent Nagano as well as the Hallé Orchestra. She actually is a regular recitalist and documenting artist. She made an appearance on recordings on many brands, including Deutsche Grammophon (Relationship of Figaro, Parsifal) and on Telarc (Mahler’s Symphony No. 8 and Haydn’s The Creation.) She became a special recording musician for Arabesque Information, saving a recital disk (with her hubby, Metropolitan Opera conductor Kevin Murphy) and a set of Bach wedding ceremony cantatas.
