“Fillmore was radiant with her warm and vibrant soprano voice.”

Molly Fillmore has garnered international acclaim as both a soprano and mezzo-soprano and continues to successfully perform solo repertoire spanning both voice types.  She made her Metropolitan Opera debut as Helmwige in the Met’s newest, Grammy-winning production of Der Ring der Nibelungen, conducted by James Levine and directed by Robert Lepage.
