The brilliant mezzo-soprano Katarina Karnéus takes a break from her appearances in Opera North’s Salome to give a rare in-the-round recital of French songs.
Since winning the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition in 1995, Katarina’s career has soared with performances at Covent Garden and the Metropolitan Opera in New York, and with numerous prestigious orchestras under conductors including Sir Simon Rattle and Sir Antonio Pappano.
She is joined by pianist Joseph Middleton, Royal Philharmonic Society Award winner and Director of Leeds Lieder.
