We are delighted to announce the representation of Scottish soprano Eleanor Dennis, a recent graduate of the Royal College of Music Opera School. She recently made her professional debut at the English National Opera in a new production of Vaughan Williams' A Pilgrim's Progress and she returns to the house next season as Erste Dame in a new production of Die Zauberflöte.
Her appearances at the London Handel Festival first brought her to the attention of London audiences, and it was in the title role of Rodelinda in March 2011 that she made her first major break through. The critics were unanimous in their praise. Fiona Maddocks, reviewing her performance in The Observer, wrote "she has a marvellous future. I'm not sure I can ever remember one who so obviously deserves to be a star". In the 2012 Festival she appeared as Costanza in Riccardo Primo prompting Hugh Canning to call her "a big talent" and, this year, she returns to the Festival to sing Oresia in a concert performance of Telemann's Orpheus with Classical Opera and Ian Page.
She has also sung the Fiordiligi Così fan tutte at the Royal College, Contessa Le nozze di Figaro for British Youth Opera, Romilda Xerxes for English Touring Opera and Lucio Cinna Lucio Silla for Classical Opera (of which she is an Associate Artist) at Cadogan Hall.
Her forthcoming concert engagements include The Creation with the Orquesta Sinfónica del Principado de Asturias and Benjamin Bayl, Handel arias with the Early Opera Company and Chrisian Curnyn, Mozart's Requiem with the English Chamber Orchestra and David Hill and Erste Dame in concert performances of Die Zauberflöte at the Drottningholm Court Theatre with the Swedish Radio Orchestra and Daniel Harding.
She has also sung the Fox The Cunning Little Vixen with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and Vladimir Jurowski, the title role in Francisco António de Almeida's Ippolito at the Festival de Sablé with the Orquestra Barroca Casa da Música and Laurence Cummings and Strauss arias with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and John Georgiadis.
