The winner of the 2017 Beverly Sills Artist Award and 2015 Richard Tucker Award, the winner of both Main and Song Prizes at the 2013 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, a winner of the 2007 Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and a Grammy nominee, American mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton has been described by The Guardian as “a great artist, no question, with an imperturbable steadiness of tone, and a nobility of utterance that invites comparison not so much with her contemporaries as with mid-20th century greats such as Kirsten Flagstad.”
Last season, Ms. Barton released her debut solo album, All Who Wander, featuring songs by Mahler, Dvorak, and Sibelius. She returned to the Metropolitan Opera as Fenena in Nabucco and Jezibaba in a new production of Rusalka, both simulcast in cinemas worldwide, and to Houston Grand Opera as Waltraute/2nd Norn in Götterdämmerung. She also made her Deutsche Oper Berlin debut as Princess Eboli in Don Carlo, and debuted with the New York Philharmonic as Fricka in Das Rheingold. Other recent concert engagements include a debut at Wigmore Hall and returns to the symphony orchestras of Toronto and Iceland, as well as the world premiere of Jake Heggie’s The Work at Hand at Carnegie Hall and Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra.
