Following her sensational role debut as Elsa von Brabant in a new production of Lohengrin conducted by Andris Nelsons at the Royal Opera House in June, Jennifer has been propelled to international attention, winning praise for her gleaming, silvery tone, and dramatic characterisation of remarkable immediacy.

Jennifer is an alumna of the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme, and has appeared at Covent Garden as Adina, L’elisir d’amore; Erste Dame, Die Zauberflöte; Ifigenia, Oreste; Arbate, Mitridate, re di Ponto; and Ines in Il trovatore, among others.

This season, Jennifer returned to the Royal Opera as Gretel in a new production of Hänsel und Gretel, where the run was entirely sold out ahead of the first performance in December 2018. Next season, Jennifer will make her US debut as Countess Almaviva in a new production of Le nozze di Figaro at San Francisco Opera, and her debut at the Wiener Staatoper in the title role in a new production of Beethoven’s Leonore. Future engagements include returns to the Royal Opera House and San Francisco Opera, as well as series of exciting house and role debuts across Europe and America, including at the Gran Teatre del Liceu and the Deutsche Oper Berlin. On the concert platform, Jennifer will appear with the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic, the Athens Philharmonic, and with the Accademia Santa Cecilia and Sir Antonio Pappano.
