Rayfield Allied is delighted to announce the signing of soprano Claire Rutter for exclusive world-wide representation.
Recent performances include the roles of Tosca at Icelandic Opera and at Welsh National Opera, where she also appeared as Leonora La Forza del Destino. At Grange Park Opera last summer she appeared as Amelia Un Ballo in Maschera receiving outstanding reviews. She also recently sang the title role Vanessa for Wexford Festival Opera and Sieglinde Die Walküre for Grange Park Opera.
‘Claire Rutter, last year’s accomplished Sieglinde, is a vibrant and dramatic Amelia.’
The Stage, David Gutman, 14 June 2018
‘His wife and victim Amelia is in the safe hands of Claire Rutter, a fine spinto singer who's often the grande dame but here projects emotional vulnerability with ravishing beauty and superb control.’
WhatsOnStage, Mark Valencia, 11 June 2018
‘Claire Rutter, sharing the roles of Tosca with Mary Elizabeth Williams, sang tonight's title role with conviction, beauty and convincingly passionate drama. The innocent victim of Act 1 elsewhere found more fiery reserve as the tortured opera singer, her voice warmly coloured throughout her range, and her second act “Vissi d'arte” was enormously moving.’
Bachtrack, Rohan Shotton, 11 February 2018
Claire Rutter next appears at English National Opera performing in Opera For All to mark 50 years of opera in residence at the London Coliseum. She then travels to Scottish Opera to sing Fidelia Edgar.
