|The current production at the L'Opera de Lille|
Erin is one of the word's most promising young artists. The Metropolitan Opera is her home company. During the 2011-2012 season, she appeared in the Met's Grammy award-winning Ring cycle.

She was recently hailed by critics as a "major success" when she stepped in at the last minute to sing all performances of Sophie in Der Rosenkavalier at the Met. Not bad for a young girl from Utah still at the start of her professional life!

You may remember Erin from her past performance (2011) with the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. It's interesting to note that Ms. Morley's father is a physician who sings with the choir. Her mom is an accomplished violinist in the Orchestra at Temple Square. (Morley's mom is also my friend Bente's cousin. Lots of musical talent in this family!)
This is a young woman to watch.... and listen to too! I'm so happy to have been able to tell you a little about her here in this blog.
