Her velvety timbre and engagingly natural style have made her a peerless mezzo on major opera stages worldwide for the last decade. We first saw her here as a young singer playing Angelina in the production of La Cenerentola directed by Irina Brook. Since then, this Latvian singer’s career has progressed apace and she has tackled more dramatic roles, most recently as Dido in Les Troyens and Eboli in Don Carlos in Paris, as well as a dazzling Delilah with Roberto Alagna at the Metropolitan in New York. However, this artist from colder climes has never hidden her attraction to Spanish repertoire, which she often sings in the second half of her recitals, as is the case here with a programme of great Italian 19th century arias combined with canciones and zarzuelas. An evening which certainly promises to take us on a journey.
