Molly Dunn hails from South Orange, New Jersey, a community thriving in the arts. She made her operatic debut as an Apprentice Artist at the Miami Music Festival, singing Erste Dame in Die Zauberflöte and performing in the Zarzuela concert series. Favorite musical theatre credits include Amalia Balash in She Loves Me, Johanna u/s in Sweeney Todd, and Rosa Bud in The Mystery of Edwin Drood, Babette in Beauty and the Beast and covered Carlotta in Phantom. She is also a Finalist and Special Award Winner in the 2017 Lotte Lenya Competition. This past season, Molly made her international debut as Suor Angelica in Suor Angelica at the Wiener Kammeroper in Vienna. Molly was scheduled to sing Mimì in La Bohème in Morelia, Mexico, summer 2020. While this performance was cancelled, due to covid-19, Molly is looking forward to performing Mimì in the future. In response to the pandemic, Molly has been producing "stoop operas" in Jersey City. The latest "stoop opera", Zombie Opera brought classical music safely to the streets of Jersey City and raised over $1500 for the scholarship fund at Molly's school, LUX Performing Arts.
This Halloween, opera has risen from the grave.
