About

Noted for her “imperturbable steadiness of tone” (The Guardian), Grammy®-nominated mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton shares her radiant vocals, accompanied by pianist Kathleen Kelly. Jamie returns to the WNO stage after portraying Princess Eboli in Don Carlo in 2018 and Waltraute in Wagner’s Ring Cycle in 2016. A 2014 recipient of the Marian Anderson Vocal Award, Jamie has performed on renowned opera stages, from the Metropolitan Opera to Houston Grand Opera. Jamie Barton appears on May 4 courtesy of the Metropolitan Opera.

Performance Timing: TBA


Renée Fleming says:
“From the classical world, where virtuosity and technique are developed to Olympic standards, mezzo-soprano Jamie Barton is a singer of such spectacular gifts that she has won virtually every top award there is: the Richard Tucker Prize, the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, and the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, to name but three. And her star is still rising. Jamie’s powerful, sumptuously beautiful voice, combined with her personal warmth and artistic intelligence, make her performances unforgettable; and I expect that the opportunity to hear her in an intimate space like the Family  Theater will become even rarer as she continues to conquer the world’s great opera houses.”
