Thursday evening sees Lucy Crowe’s
return to the English National Opera
in her role debut as Dona Isabel in Purcell’s The Indian Queen
. Lucy returns to the ENO following her acclaimed performances as Rosina in Rossini’s The Barber of Seville
in 2013 where the critics hailed her “crystalline tone and fluent coloratura” (The Telegraph) and remarked that “Crowe effortlessly steals the limelight as a soprano Rosina, with diamantine bravura and a winningly minxish persona…unmissable for Crowe. ENO would do well to book her for any lyric-coloratura roles she wants to sing there.” (The Sunday Times). This new production by ENO’s Director-in-residence, Peter Sellars, promises to be a spectacular theatrical event combining music, dance, literature and the visual arts. Laurence Cummings conducts.
The performance dates are February 26, 28 and March 2, 4, 6, 9, 12 & 14.
Lucy’s 2014/15 season has already seen her sing Adina in L’Elisir d’Amore at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, and the summer boasts her first Micaëla in Carmen and Merab in Saul for Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Next season she will return to the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the English National Opera, and the Metropolitan Opera.
