Zoë Spangler is a classical soprano from Salem, Oregon, though she is currently based in Colorado. Most recently, Zoë returned to Miami Music Festival to sing the role of Tytania in Benjamin Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream. 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 March, Zoë is joining the Wild Beautiful Orchestra in Denver for their showcase of works by lesser-known composer, Kaikhorsu Sorabji. She is also looking forward to performing with Miami City Ballet as the soprano soloist in the company’s production of West Side Story under the baton of Maestro Gary Sheldon in April.
