Mezzo-soprano

  • Annie Gill’s Carmen had a certain manipulative allure, filtered through her fine-and-full high mezzo

  • Annie Gill and Claire Wild in seedy goth get-up were fabulous as Carmen’s friends Mercedes and Frasquita and their flawless singing bubbled with energy

  • Annie Gill completed her postgraduate studies at the Royal Northern College of Music before becoming a young artist at the Opera National du Rhin in Strasbourg. She was a major scholar of the Peter Moores foundation.

    She came to international prominence when she performed the role of Mercedes at the Opera Comique Paris in a new production of Carmen directed by Adrian Noble under the baton of Sir John Eliot Gardiner. She has subsequently sung Mercedes for Opera North and the title role of Carmen for Scottish Opera on Tour. In David McVicar’s new Ring Cycle for L’Opera National du Rhin, she sang the role of Waltraute under the musical direction of Marko Letonja.

    Concert performances include Handel Il trionfo del tempo e disinganno with Alexis Kossenko in Poland, Bach B Minor Mass in Edinburgh and at the Belfast Festival, Mozart Coronation Mass in St Petersburg with Kristofer Wahlander and the St Petersburg Festival Orchestra, Messiah in Hamburg and at the Queen’s Hall in Edinburgh, Mozart Requiem with the Manchester Camerata, and performances of the Cantata BWV60 with Sir John Eliot Gardiner and the Orchestre Révolutionnaire et Romantique at the Royal Festival Hall and the Concertgebouw Amsterdam.

    Her recordings include the Dublin version of Handel’s Messiah, which won a Gramophone Award 2007 in the Baroque Vocal category and the recently released St Matthew Passion, both with the Dunedin Consort.

    Current engagements include Monteverdi’s Return of Ulysses for Iford Opera.

    • Carmen
      Scottish Opera

      The Miss Brodie-ish brogue of Annie Gill’s Carmen had a certain manipulative allure, filtered through her fine-and-full high mezzo. The pout-quotient may have been low but her diction was good – essential for the town halls this show will visit. And I’d go for a well-sung Carmen every time over a clichéd vamp.
