These performances mark the end of a very busy season for Lucy, having most recently made her house debut at Oper Frankfurt in the title role of Handel’s Rodelinda. Lucy will open her 2019/20 with a new production of Handel’s Agrippina at the Royal Opera House, performing the role of Poppea. Hanno has also enjoyed a thrilling season, most recently with performances of the Bach St Matthew Passion with the Cincinnati Symphony and Beethoven Symphony No. 9 with the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia.
The Cunning Little Vixen will be featured at the Barbican for two performances on 27 and 29 June, before transferring to the Philharmonie in Paris for a performance on 2 July.
