About This Event

The sheer wealth and beauty of English poetry has been a continual inspiration to British composers. Since winning the Joan Sutherland Audience Prize at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World 2021 mezzo-soprano Claire Barnett-Jones has become one of the most sought-after voices on both the operatic stage and the concert platform – with one critic writing that she ‘stole the stage at every movement’ in English National Opera’s recent The Cunning Little Vixen. Today, with pianist Simon Lepper, she celebrates the songs of 2022 Proms featured composers Vaughan Williams and Ethel Smyth, brings all her theatrical flair to a Shakespeare sketch by the late Joseph Horovitz, and sings something entirely new from Proms favourite Errollyn Wallen.

There will be no interval
