A graduate of Yale’s prestigious Opera Program, Adelaide made her debut on the Metropolitan Opera stage at age 21, under the direction of Marco Armiliato, as a National Finalist in the renowned Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions. Since then, soprano Adelaide Muir Trombetta has rapidly gained recognition as a world-class singer and a compelling stage performer, enjoying leading concert and stage engagements throughout the United States and Europe.
Her most notable roles include Musetta in La Bohème, Euridice in Orphée aux enfers, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus, and Konstanze in Die Entführung aus dem Serail. Abroad, she has enjoyed repeated seasons with the Orchestra Giuseppe Verdi of Milan and Das Verein Opera of Zurich, performing the leading roles of Hanna Glawari (Die lustige Witwe), Euridice (Orphée aux enfers), Ana (The Seven Deadly Sins by Kurt Weill), Lilli Vanessi “Katherine” (Kiss Me Kate), and Rosalinde (Die Fledermaus). Additionally, she performed while modeling a Gianfranco Ferré designer gown for TaoModa, one of the largest fashion shows in Italy.
Equally comfortable on the concert stage, Adelaide is a regular featured soloist with symphony orchestras, and has received critical acclaim for her renditions of Orff’s Carmina Burana, Fauré’s Requiem, Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, and Mozart’s Great Mass in C minor, among others. In 2018, Adelaide made her Carnegie Hall debut in Weill Recital Hall singing Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 with guitarist David Veslocki. Adelaide is also a skilled dancer and has performed several cross-over concerts allowing her to showcase her lesser-known talent, featuring tap, ballroom, and ballet. Adelaide is Assistant Professor of Voice and Opera at Liberty University and resides in Lynchburg, VA with her husband and their two daughters.
