Ruby Warren is a new Artist Diploma student at Texas Christian University and is delighted to also be joining Fort Worth Opera as a studio artist this season. Ruby earned her Master’s in voice performance at the University of Colorado-Boulder in 2018, where she was featured in performances of The Mozart Requiem, Ariodante, Die Lustige Witwe, and Die Zauberflöte with guest director Herschel Garfein. She also had the opportunity at CU to work the composer Jake Heggie as he workshopped and finalized a new and imaginative opera called If I Were You. Ruby's Bachelor’s degree in music is from the University of Wisconsin Madison, where she sang principal roles in Ariodante, Die Zauberflöte, Béatrice et Bénédict, and Le Nozze di Figaro. Ruby has also worked with Central City Opera as a studio artist, been featured in productions at Martina Arroyo’s Prelude to Performance program in New York City, and she is grateful to have studied under the tutelage of Carol Vaness while attending the Aspen Music Festival and School. Ever since she was a young girl, Ruby has been finding joy and meaning within the performing arts, and she looks forward to where yet this exciting path may take her.
