Meghan Picerno BIO

Hailed by The New York Times for her “attractive soprano voice,” and for having “total control of the stage,” (Broadway World) coloratura soprano Meghan Picerno is hailed for her exciting, crowd-pleasing performances on theatre, opera and concert stages throughout the world. Picerno took national audiences by storm as Christine Daaé in the US Premiere and First National Tour of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s Love Never Dies. Her portrayal of Christine had critics in awe, “Picerno, however, steals the show with her hypnotic, operatic voice and her expert depiction of Christine’s inner turmoil. Her impeccable vocal performance carries the climax of the production, in which Christine must choose between Raoul and the Phantom...Picerno’s high notes, exuding operatic flare, soar to the mezzanine level of the theater and beyond.” This led to special invitations from Andrew Lloyd Webber to represent his body of work in performance on the ITV television broadcast of the Classic BRIT Awards in 2018, and a guest appearance on the Live at Chelsea Concert Series honoring his 70th birthday. After finishing Love Never Dies, Picerno took another turn at Christine, this time in a sparkling new production of The Phantom of the Opera on its highly lauded World Tour.

Ms. Picerno’s star began to rise after her first collaboration with legendary director Hal Prince as Cunegonde in his new production of Candide at New York City Opera. Of her performance, Huffington Post hailed: “The real beauty of the evening was Meghan Picerno, clear of voice and crisp of diction, who managed the challenging ‘Glitter and Be Gay’ with aplomb.” Quickly becoming one of the most sought-after Cungeondes in the world, Picerno reprised the role at San Francisco Symphony (led by Michael Tilson Thomas), Princeton Symphony, and the Gran Teatre del Liceu in Barcelona.
Before hitting the road with Love Never Dies, Ms. Picerno delighted Off-Broadway audiences in Musicals in Mufti: From Berlin to Broadway with the York Theatre Company and as Lucie Dreyfus in The Dreyfus Affair with Ensemble of the Romantic Century. Among Picerno’s favorite regional credits are Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady, Marian in The Music Man, and Amalia in She Loves Me,
On concert stages, she starred in “Oh, Happy Us” at The Appel Room, Birdland Jazz Club, The Actor's Fund Gala celebrating Hal Prince, and T. Schreiber Studio’s 48th Anniversary Gala. She has graced concert stages in solo débuts in prestigious venues such as New York City’s David Geffen Hall and Alice Tully Hall, and The National Center of Performing Arts in Beijing, and Theatro Municipal de São Paolo. Meghan can also be seen in a commercial spot for Scrub Daddy, which became the most successful company ever featured on Shark Tank.

Upon graduating with a Master of Music degree in Voice from Manhattan School of Music, Picerno enjoyed a diverse career on operatic stages including thrilling performances of Queen of the Night in Mozart’s Die Zauberflöte at Lincoln Center and Carnegie Hall, and a series of successful role débuts throughout the country including Gilda in Rigoletto, Violetta in La traviata, Olympia in Les Contes d'hoffmann, and the title role of Lucia di Lammermoor.
