Lauren Fagan

Soprano from Australia - 31 years old

I was born in Sydney and studied at London’s Guildhall School of Music and Drama. I’m a recent graduate of the Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House.

I’ve sung Violetta (La traviata) and Donna Anna (Don Giovanni) for Opera Holland Park, Musetta (La bohème) for Welsh National Opera, Roxana (Szymanowski’s King Roger) under Sir Antonio Pappano with Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni) with the NHK Symphony Orchestra under Paavo Järvi.

On the concert platform I’ve sung Strauss’ Four Last Songs with Malmö Opera and the Xi’an Symphony Orchestra, Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music at the Last Night of the BBC Proms, Anitrain Peer Gynt with Orchestre National de Lyon, and Agnès in George Benjamin’s Written on Skin with the Melos Sinfonia.

This season, I returned to the Royal Opera House as Woglinde in Der Ring des Nibelungen, as well as making my role debut as Alcina at the Internationale Händel-Festspiele in Karlsruhe. Concert performances include Beethoven’s 9th Symphony with Symphoniker Hamburg and Oslo Philharmonic, as well as Tippett’s A Child of Our Time with the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra. Further ahead, I make my role debuts as Vitellia (La clemenza di Tito) and Mimì (La bohème).

I love running, reading and playing with our golden retrievers back home in Sydney.
