Patron for Clapham Opera Festival

Patron for Clapham Opera Festival

 Lucy Crowe, the young up and coming new British Opera star, has agreed to be Patron of the Clapham Opera Festival.

The Festival’s co- founder, Marie Soulier, is particularly pleased to have Lucy Crowe as the Festival’s first patron. “Opera is a living art for all the ages, and we are delighted to have a rising young star associated with the Clapham Opera Festival. I know that she shares our view that to attract a younger audience there is no better way than to offer great opera performed on your doorstep by superb young singers and musicians.”

Lucy Crowe has established herself as one of the leading lyric sopranos of her generation and she has performed and recorded with many of the world's greatest conductors, including Yannick Nezet-Seguin, Emannuelle Haïm, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Sir Charles Mackerras, Sir Roger Norrington, Trevor Pinnock, Mark Minkowski and Harry Bicket.

She has sung operatic roles at the Metropolitan Opera, New York, Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Deutsche Oper Berlin, Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich, English National Opera as well as in Lille, Paris and for the Opera de Dijon and the Glyndebourne Festival Opera.  She made her US Opera debut as Iole in Handel’s ‘Hercules’ for the Chicago Lyric Opera.
