Tara Erraught was born in Dundalk and studied in Dublin at the Royal Irish Academy of Music with Veronica Dunne. She was a resident principal soloist between 2010 and 2018 at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich. Her roles there brought her to international attention with notable debuts at the Glyndebourne Festival in 2014 and at the Metropolitan Opera, New York in 2017. Her schedule for 2019 will take her to the Staatsoper Unter den Linden, Berlin where she will sing Donna Elvira with the Wiener Staatsoper on tour in Düsseldorf. She will appear in concerts in Savannah, Milwaukee and Indianapolis, at the Teatro Colón, Buenos Aires and at the Schubertiade in Schwarzenberg. She also gives a recital at the National Concert Hall, Dublin.
We welcome back to Holkham Sholto Kynoch, Founder and Director of the Oxford Lieder Festival, now one of the world’s most prestigious song festivals. He is also pianist in the Phoenix Piano Trio and is involved in a continuing project recording the complete songs by Hugo Wolf, which number almost three hundred. Sholto made his debut at Holkham’s Chamber Music series in April 2018 and will be back for two performances at the 2019 North Norfolk Music Festival in August.
”...in Tara Erraught, WNO has a natural Angelina. The Irish mezzo’s voice is warm as smouldering embers, tender throughout, with unfaltering coloratura. She’s down to earth but a dreamer, wise about the world but innocently hopeful.” The Times.
