Marilyn Horne (born January 16, 1934) is an American operatic mezzo-soprano. She specialized in roles requiring a large sound, beauty of tone, excellent breath support, and the ability to execute difficult coloratura passages. Horne’s first major professional engagement was in 1954, when she dubbed the singing voice of Dorothy Dandridge in the film Carmen Jones. For many years, Horne was associated with the Australian soprano Dame Joan Sutherland in their performances of the bel canto repertoire. They first performed together in a concert version of Vincenzo Bellini’s Beatrice di Tenda at The Town Hall in Manhattan in February 1961. This performance was so successful it was repeated twice at Carnegie Hall. In 1965, they were paired again in a performance of Gioachino Rossini’s Semiramide with the Opera Company of Boston, and sang in a joint concert on October 15, 1979, which was telecasted as “Live from Lincoln Center”. Horne made her debut at the Royal Opera House in October 1964 as Marie in Alban Berg’s Wozzeck. Her La Scala debut was as Jocasta in Igor Stravinsky’s opéra-oratorio Œdipus rex on March 13, 1969. Another of Horne’s breakthroughs occurred that same year during a performance of Rossini’s Le siège de Corinthe at La Scala, when Horne received a remarkable mid-act seven-minute ovation. Horne made her debut at the Metropolitan Opera in 1970 as Adalgisa in Bellini’s Norma with Sutherland in the title role. She thereafter appeared regularly at the Met, opening the 1972/1973 season as Carmen. On March 28, 1982 she performed in concert with soprano Leontyne Price under the baton of James Levine at the Met. The recorded concert was nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award. Horne was married from 1960 to 1979 (separated 1974) to the conductor Henry Lewis. She is a recipient of the National Medal of Arts in 1992 and the Kennedy Center Honors in 1995. She has won four Grammy Awards.
