New Artists: soprano Nadine Livingston and mezzo-soprano Katie Bray
We’re delighted to officially announce the signing of two very exciting young singers, soprano Nadine Livingston and mezzo-soprano Katie Bray:
Nadine has already achieved great success and critical acclaim as an Emerging Artist at Scottish Opera where roles have included Susanna (“Her Susanna, vivacious, lyrical, perfectly tuned and with a consistently silvery lustre from above the stave to the chesty depths of Deh vieni, is a knockout.” - The Times) and Gilda (“Nadine Livingston confirmed the promise of her Susanna in last autumn’s Figaro with a sensitively sung and convincingly ingenuous Gilda.” - The Telegraph), and most recently (showcasing her versatility) as Anna in a new production of Kurt Weill’s Seven Deadly Sins. On the concert platform she has sung Nielson and Mahler with the Halle Orchestra under Sir Mark Elder. In 2012 she will make her debut at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, singing Woglinde in the Ring Cycle, conducted by Antonio Pappano.
In her final year at the Royal Academy of Music, Katie Bray is already making a name for herself as one of the most promising mezzo sopranos of her generation. She has appeared with success in several productions including Kurt Weill ‘Dreigroschenoper’, Mozart ‘Cosi fan Tutte’, and Maxwell Davies ‘Kommilitonen’ with David Pountney and Jane Glover. This season, RAM productions include the title role in Berlioz ‘Beatrice et Benedict’ conducted by Sir Colin Davis with John Copley directing, and Second Lady in ‘Die Zauberfloete’. In 2012 she joins the Glyndebourne Festival Chorus. She features in concerts with Paul McCreesh and Graham Johnson, and gives a recital at Wigmore Hall for the Countess of Munster Trust.
