Measha Brueggergosman is one of the leading sopranos of her generation.  At home in a wide variety of styles, highlights on the opera stage include Giulietta and Antonia Les contes d'Hoffmann, Elettra Idomeneo, Madame Lidoine Dialogues des Carmélites, Liu Turandot, Emilia Marty Věc Makropulos and Sister Rose in Jake Heggie's Dead Man Walking.

On the concert platform her appearances include the Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic Orchestra, Cleveland Orchestra and the New World, San Francisco and London Symphony Orchestras with conductors such as Barenboim, Sir Andrew Davis, Dudamel, Harding, Tilson Thomas and Welser-Möst.

Measha is also a committed recitalist and she has performed at Carnegie Hall, Washington's Kennedy Center, London's Wigmore Hall, both the Konzerthaus and Musikverein in Vienna as well as at the Schwarzenberg, Edinburgh, Verbier and Bergen Festivals with her regular partner, pianist Justus Zeyen.

Her first recording for Deutsche Grammophone, Surprise, includes works by Schoenberg, Satie and Bolcom and is one of the most highly regarded debut albums of recent years. Her subsequent disc Night and Dreams, which features songs by Mozart, Brahms, Strauss, Schubert, Debussy, Duparc and Fauré was equally well received.

Measha Brueggergosman champions the education and involvement of new audiences and holds several ambassadorial titles with international charities.

Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny

Opera di Roma, October 2015

"La forza e il successo di questo avvincente allestimento sta anche nell’ottimo cast cha sfoggia grande capacità interpretativa (è sempre Brecht!) e vocale: ... la suadente e formosa Jenny Hill di Measha Brueggergosman (perfetta nelle scene stile kabarett)" Fabiana Raponi, Teatrionline, 12 October 2015
"Il cast dei cantanti è ottimo. ... La celebre aria «Oh! Moon of Alabama» è gagliardamente interpretata da Measha Brueggergosman, nel ruolo di Jenny, che canta e recita bene tutta la parte." Stefano Ceccarelli, Ape Musicale, 8 October 2015

'Americans in Paris': 16 July 2015

Toronto Summer Music Festival, Koerner Hall

"After recently giving birth to her second son, Bruggergosman looked radiant and cast a spell of pure charm that was hard to resist. From her moving rendition of Copland’s “Heart, we will forget him,” to Bolcom’s hilarious “The Total Stranger in the Garden,” Bruggergosman’s wholehearted and buttery tone was served hot. Playing up the role, one could see the diva not only sing the words, but feel them deeply."
Michael Vincent, The Star, 17 July 2015
