Recital Series: Barbara Hannigan

“New Yorkers should be getting more regular and varied doses of such an extraordinary performer in her prime.”
New York Magazine

Barbara Hannigan has taken the classical music world by storm as a highly sought after conductor of leading orchestras and singing on the world’s greatest stages. The soprano has found herself as a muse and collaborator for a number of legendary composers of our time, creating operatic roles by adding a kind of virtuosity and artistry that contemporary music has rarely seen before. Following her whirlwind US recital debut at the Armory in 2017, this astonishing musical artist returns with an artfully curated residency showcasing her versatility. She opens the engagement with a program that includes the New York premiere of John Zorn’s “Jumalatteret,” and continues with a second program featuring the famed Emerson String Quartet.
