Jamie Barton, mezzo-soprano
Spivey Hall Debut
Following in the footsteps of vocal luminaries such as Dmitri Hvorostovsky and Karita Mattila, Jamie Barton was named the 2013 BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, also winning the Song Prize, first awarded to Bryn Terfel. A Georgia native, Shorter College alumna, metro-Atlanta resident, and protégéé of Marilyn Horne, she appears this season at the Metropolitan Opera in Bellini’s Norma and makes her Cleveland Orchestra debut with conductor Franz Welser-Möst, with a return to Lyric Opera of Chicago also confirmed.
"A great artist, no question, with an imperturbable steadiness of tone, and a nobility of utterance that invites comparison not so much with her contemporaries as with mid-20th century greats such as Kirsten Flagstad" (The Guardian).
