With over 60 principal roles to his credit, he is a highly sought-after leading baritone by major opera houses and orchestras worldwide, including the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Covent Garden, Lyric Opera of Chicago, Salzburg Festival, Carnegie Hall, Théâtre du Châtelet, Grand Théâtre de Genève, Israeli Opera, New York City Opera, Bunkamura (Tokyo), Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, BBC Symphony, LA Phil, Staatsoper Hannover, Orchestra of St. Luke's, American Symphony Orchestra, and many others. He has recorded for Innova, GPR, and BMG records, with broadcast credits including BBC, Arte, NPR, Radio France, RAI, and Radio Netherlands.
A celebrated interpreter of contemporary music, he has created roles for some of today’s most important living composers, including Thomas Adès, Peter Eötvös, and David T. Little, while simultaneously garnering critical acclaim for his interpretations of classic works from the Baroque, Classical, Romantic and Modern eras, most notably Don Giovanni, Eugene Onegin, Figaro in The Barber of Seville, Billy Budd, Count Almaviva in The Marriage of Figaro and Orff's Carmina Burana.
Also known for his work as a stage director, composer, and video designer, Mr. Moore co-founded two NYC-based arts collectives, GLMMR and Choreo Teatro, with whom he has created music, video, and performance works in venues including the 92nd St. Y, .NO Gallery, and The Cell. Most recently, his multimedia production of Schubert's Winterreise, with visuals by GLMMR, was enthusiastically received at venues throughout the U.S. including National Sawdust (NYC), Atlanta Opera, Des Moines Metro Opera, and Anchorage Opera. Also with GLMMR and his artistic partner, the renowned stage/film designer Vita Tzykun, Mr. Moore directed and designed the world's largest-scale production of Michael Nyman's The Man Who Mistook His Wife For a Hat for Indianapolis Opera, and designed sets, costumes and projections for a new production of David T. Little's Soldier Songs at Atlanta Opera and San Diego Opera. As a performance artist, he has collaborated with Holly Herndon in Blood Makes Noise at the Guggenheim Museum and Nick Hallett at NYC's Town Hall.
