Opera South presents

Mary Stuart meets Rossini

A celebrity recital

James Baillieu

with mezzo-soprano Anna Huntley and pianist James Baillieu

"noble in timbre and confidential in tone" (Financial Times)

“...a superbly placed sense of drama...using her endlessly pliable voice to maximum effect.” (The Scotsman)

The programme will include:

Schumann Maria Stuart Lieder

Rossini La Regata Veneziana

Mozart and Rossini arias

and a selection of English song

An outstanding recitalist, Anna is a regular performer at the Wigmore Hall and across Europe, working with many of the world’s leading accompanists. Highlights include recitals at the Wiener Musikverein, Kammermusiksaal, Berliner Philharmonie, the Blüthner Zylkus (Vienna), Oxford Lieder, Brighton, Bath, St Magnus and Leeds Lieder Festivals.

With releases including Schumann’s Frauenliebe und -leben and Ravel’s Chansons madécasses and Trois poèmes de Stéphane Mallarmé, Anna has been lauded by The Guardian as a ‘fast-rising British talent’.

Anna is supported by James Baillieu, who has decisively and rapidly established himself as a remarkably astute accompanist. Having met at the Royal Academy of Music, they are celebrating 10 years as a duo, and have performed much of tonight’s programme at the Wigmore Hall.

Based in Haslemere, Opera South produces professional, high-quality performances of unfamiliar music, offering a platform for emerging artists and operas of genuine artistic value. World-class musicians on our doorstep!
