Scottish soprano Eleanor Dennis is a recent graduate of the Royal College of Music and is a Harewood Young Artist at the English National Opera.
In the 2014/15 season she will sing Contessa Le nozze de Figaro and Micaela Carmen at the English National Opera and her appearances on the concert platform will include Elgar's Une Voix dans le Désert with the CBSO and Andris Nelsons, Beethoven's Egmont with the BBC Philharmonic and Juanjo Mena and Strauss' Vier Letzte Lieder with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and Martyn Brabbins.
Her appearances at the London Handel Festival first brought her to prominence, 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, in 2013, she returned to the Festival to sing Oresia in a concert performance of Telemann's Orpheus with Ian Page and Classical Opera (of which she is an Associate Artist).
Other notable appearances have included Ginevra Ariodante at the Salzburger Landestheater, Erste Dame Die Zauberflöte at the English National Opera and at the Drottingholms Slottsteater and Liù Turandot in concert for Scottish Opera. Highlights on the concert platform have included the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra with Ilan Volkov, the London Philharmonic Orchestra with Vladimir Jurowski and the Swedish Radio Orchestra with Daniel Harding.
