Soprano Lesley Garrett returns with evenings of song, reminiscences and chat
Wonderful news! This autumn sees the launch of a new series of shows offering the chance to join Britain’s most popular soprano, Lesley Garrett, for a delightful evening of song, reminiscences and chat.
She will be accompanied by, and in conversation with, the pianist Anna Tilbrook. Meanwhile Lesley’s behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes will give audiences a unique insight into her life on the stage.
As well as performing on the opera and concert stage both in the UK and internationally, Lesley has recently returned to English National Opera for the world premiere production of Nico Muhly’s Marnie. Last spring she appeared with WNO in another world premiere creating the role of Emcee in Rhonda Rips It Up!, based on the life of suffragette Margaret Haig Thomas (Lady Rhondda) and the autumn saw Lesley make her acting debut in a revised version of Patrick Barlow’s play, The Messiah for the National Theatre of Brent, on tour and in the West End. This spring she created another new role in ENO’s world premiere of Iain Bell’s opera, Jack the Ripper at the Coliseum. Lesley will be back with Clive Conway Productions from September.
