Zoë Spangler is a classical soprano from Salem, Oregon, though she is currently based in Colorado. Most recently, Zoë was a soloist with the Miami City Ballet under the baton of Maestro Gary Sheldon in the company’s 2023 production of West Side Story. She recently performed the role of Tytania in Benjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with Miami Music festival in 2022. The previous year, she was seen as La fée (Cendrillon) with Miami Music Festival.
“Confirming the strong impression she made as La fée in Massenet’s Cendrillon, Zoë Spangler commanded Tytania’s scenes with queenly majesty, producing acrobatic coloratura leaps and subtle pianissimos in equally ravishing fashion (South Florida Classical Review).”
During her graduate studies in Denver, Zoë performed the role of Pamina and covered the Queen of the Night in Lamont Opera Theatre’s production of Die Zauberflöte in 2021. She was Beth March (Little Women) with Opera in the Ozarks and Suor Genovieffa, Nella, and Young Lover in Il Trittico with Lamont Opera Theatre in 2019. Zoë has also performed roles from various opera scenes such as Leïla (Les pêcheurs de perles), Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor), Despina (Così fan tutte), Sophie (Werther), and Adele (Die Fledermaus).
In addition to operatic roles, Zoë enjoys singing concert repertoire, recital literature, and competing in vocal competitions. In 2020, she was awarded the Sherry Shepherd Sargent Award in the Denver Lyric Opera Guild Competition for Colorado Singers. Zoë earned her Master of Music in Vocal Performance from Lamont School of Music and holds a Bachelor of Music from Loyola University New Orleans.
In June, Zoë will be working with the Wild Beautiful Orchestra in Denver to record works by lesser-known composer, Kaikhorsu Sorabji. She will make her role debut as Antonia in Les Contes d’Hoffmann with Canto Vocal Programs in Kentucky in August 2023.
