Soprano Barbara Hannigan and pianists Katia and Marielle Labèque shine bright in this staged production spanning nine centuries of song, directed by Netia Jones.

The Program

“A fearless soprano.”
– New York Times
“Hannigan may well be the greatest singing actress on the operatic stage today, not something often said of a specialist in contemporary lyric coloratura soprano music. Yet she possesses an instrument of clear tone and, above all, uncannily perfect intonation, which she employs in an uncompromisingly rigorous, musical and passionate way.”
– Opera Today
