This season ENO Harewood Artist Katie Stevenson sings Kate Pinkerton in Anthony Minghella’s celebrated production of Madam Butterfly under Martyn Brabbins, Third Nymph in Tatjana Gürbaca’s new production of Rusalka conducted by Antony Hermus, and appears in Harrison Birtwistle’s The Mask of Orpheus in a new production by Daniel Kramer, marking the piece’s first revival since its premiere. Elsewhere Katie reprises the role of Kate Pinkerton for Grand Théâtre de Luxembourg.
Recent highlights have included Katie’s critically acclaimed debut performances as Nefertiti in Phelim McDermott’s production of Akhnaten (ENO); Third Lady/Die Zauberflöte (ENO and Garsington), and title role/L’Agrippina (Barber Opera). On the concert platform Katie made her BBC Proms debut in Vaughan Williams’ Serenade to Music with the BBC Symphony Orchestra under Sakari Oramo, as well as joining the Orquesta Sinfónica Del Principado De Asturias for Kindertotenlieder. In recent months Katie has also added Verdi’s Messa da Requiem and Dvořák’s Stabat Mater to her ever-expanding repertoire.
Katie has been the recipient of all three prizes at the Wagner Society Singing Competition, culminating in an invitation to attend the Bayreuth Young Scholars Programme, as well as winning the 2016 Marjorie Thomas Art of Song prize.
