Join Britain’s most popular soprano, Lesley Garrett, for a delightful evening of song, reminiscences and chat. Accompanied by, and in conversation with, Anna Tilbrook Lesley’s behind-the-scenes stories and anecdotes will give audiences a unique insight into her life on the stage.

As well as performing on the opera and concert stage both in the UK and internationally, Lesley has recently returned to English National Opera for the world premiere production of Nico Muhly’s Marnie.

Last spring she appeared with Welsh National Opera in another world premiere creating the role of Emcee in Rhonda Rips It Up!, based on the life of suffragette Margaret Haig Thomas (Lady Rhondda) and the autumn saw Lesley make her acting debut in a revised version of Patrick Barlow’s play, The Messiah for the National Theatre of Brent, on tour and in the West End.

This spring she is creating another new role in English National Opera’s world premiere of Iain Bell’s opera, Jack the Ripper at the Coliseum.

Anna Tilbrook is one of Britain’s most exciting pianists, with a considerable reputation in song recitals and chamber music. She made her debut at the Wigmore Hall in 1999 and has since become a regular performer at Europe’s major concert halls and festivals, as well as coaching regularly for the Royal Opera, Covent Garden.

A natural effervescent and powerhouse voiceFinancial Times

She cares about the people who come to hear her sing …. Through her records and her unstuffy attitude to singing, she has clearly reached out to music lovers far beyond the rarified confines of the opera house.Sunday Times

“She’s a down-to-earth Northerner…she’s incredibly funny and emotional, with a glorious voice. The Daily Mail
