Jamie
Barton

mezzo-soprano

Since winning both first prize and the song prize at the 2013 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, Jamie Barton has firmly established a name for herself on both sides of the Atlantic. The US-born mezzo-soprano has performed many operatic roles – from Adalgisa in Bellini’s Norma at the Metropolitan Opera and the San Francisco Opera to Fricka in Wagner’s Das Rheingold at the Houston Grand Opera.

Her list of opera performances in Europe includes recent appearances as Princess Eboli in Verdi’s Don Carlos at the Deutsche Oper in Berlin and Fenena in Nabucco at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

On the concert stage, Barton has performed Brahms’s Alto Rhapsody with the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment conducted by Marin Alsop (her BBC Proms debut), Verdi’s Messa da requiem with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Sir Andrew Davis and Mahler’s Symphony No. 3 with the Iceland Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Osmo Vänskä.

She has also given recitals at New York’s Carnegie Hall, London’s Wigmore Hall and the Tanglewood Festival.

The mezzo-soprano won the Richard Tucker Award in 2015, followed by the Metropolitan Opera’s Beverly Sills Artist Award in 2017.

Barton will be making her first appearance with the Concertgebouworkest in the 2019–20 season.
