Susan has been developing a career as a stage director alongside performing. In 2011 she directed her first professional opera production for Opera Minima, Trial by Jury, and has subsequently directed sell-out productions of The Magic Flute and Don Pasquale for the same company.
"Harborough district is very fortunate to have this small (but perfectly formed) opera company close to home, bringing us beautifully sung and acted “proper opera”, as opposed to operetta. Opera requires powerful voices only acquired after years of training, and although Opera Minima use minimal sets and simple costumes – the singing is what matters. Don Pasquale is a romp about how to get your own way in the ways of the heart. It is hilarious, never more so than in the hands of the director, Susan Moore, a character contralto noted for her comedy. She made this opera unique." DON PASQUALE: Vivien Window
Susan directed a new production of The Magic Flute for Opera Anywhere.
In 2014 she joined W11 Opera as the Assistant Director for Deep Waters and was also Associate Director for Eliza & the Swans in 2016 as well as creating the new position of Outreach & Education Director. She directed The Price, at the end of 2016 which was very positively received. She is currently working on the 2017 commission for W11 Opera - The Cutlass Crew.
In 2015 she directed Dido & Aeneas and Carmen in Le Val, Provence. Susan was the Staff Director for English Touring Opera Spring Tour 2016 and was assistant director to James Conway, stage director for Iphigenie en Tauride and Pia de' Tolomei, and maintained both productions on tour alongside Lloyd Wood's production of Don Giovanni.
