“Ms. Royal produces an attractive, fully focused sound, but her most
compelling quality as an interpreter is an ability to offset the polished surface
of a trained voice with the passion and the sense of collective memory, however illusory, that folk singers bring to their art.” — The New York Times
British lyric soprano Kate Royal has generated significant excitement among fans of great singing with appearances at the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne Festival, Paris Opera, Royal Opera Covent Garden, and the English National Opera. Equally at home on the recital stage, the “elegant, thoughtful singer” (The New York Times) comes to the Armory to perform an artfully-curated selection of lieder and song by Robert and Clara Schumann, Mahler, and Samuel Barber.
