From the beginning of her career, when Frederica von Stade made her debut with the Metropolitan Opera, she has sung with every major American opera company and with most of the world's finest conductors. Von Stade will be appearing with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir to celebrate the opening of the Olympics on Saturday, Feb. 9, at 7:30 p.m. in the Tabernacle on Temple Square. The show is sold out. Many of her best-known roles have been sung with the Metropolitan Opera, but von Stade has earned an international reputation as well through performances at the Paris Opera, the Vienna State Opera, the Teatro alla Scala and the Convent Garden. In addition to six Grammy nominations, von Stade has also garnered two Grand Prix du Disque Awards in France, the Schallplatten Prize in Germany and the Premio della Critica Discografica in Italy. U.S. audiences who may not have heard her perform live may be familiar with von Stade through her "Live at Lincoln Center" and "Live from the Met" appearances on PBS, as well as other television programs.
