Opera. Recent appearances include her debut with The Atlanta Opera as Mary in a new production of The
Flying Dutchman
, her role debut as Adalgisa in Norma with Opera Southwest, and her company debut

Stabat Mater with The Choral Arts Society of Washington, D.C. under the baton of Antony Walker, and
in Durefle’s Requiem at The Kennedy Center. Other recent debuts include appearing with Sarasota Opera
as Mère Marie in the Dialogues des Carmélites and Nicklausse in Les contes d’Hof mann with Hawaii
Opera Theater. The 2020-2021 season would have seen Ms. Vote as the 2nd Lady in a new production of
The Magic Flute and covering Fanena in Nabucco for The Metropolitan Opera. In the 21-22 season, Ms.
Vote made her Florentine Opera debut as Maddalena in Rigoletto (rescheduled from 20-21), returned to
The Metropolitan Opera to reprise her role as Neferneferuaten in Akhnaten, and to cover and sing one
