“Barron brought incredible poise and expressive weight --
not to mention a thrillingly dark and rich-veined mezzo and
a striking stage presence" (Seen and Heard International)
In the 2020-2021 season, Singaporean-British mezzo Fleur Barron has significant house and role debuts spanning baroque to contemporary repertoire: she stars as Ottavia in Monteverdi’s L'Incoronazione di Poppea at the Aix-en-Provence Festival under the baton of Leonardo Garcia Alarcon; debuts at Opera Philadelphia as Sasha Garner in the world premiere of Jennifer Higdon’s Woman with Eyes Closed; debuts with Arizona Opera in the title role of Carmen; debuts at Garsington Opera in the role of Olga in Eugene Onegin; reprises Ottavia at the Opéra Royal de Versailles; and sings Mercedes in Carmen with Opéra de Monte-Carlo. On the concert platform, Fleur performs Chausson’s Poème de l’Amour et de la Mer with the Orchestre Symphonique de Toulon, and joins regular collaborator, pianist Julius Drake, for several recitals, including a solo recital at Het Concertgebouw, a duo recital with Eric Owens at the Philadelphia Chamber Music Society, and a duo recital with Ian Bostridge at the Oxford Lieder Festival. In addition, Fleur performs a recital with Myra Huang at Cincinnati Song Initiative, a recital at Aldeburgh with Jocelyn Freeman, at the Cannes Music Festival in France with Patrick Nebula, and records a disc of Samuel Barber songs with pianist Dylan Perez for Resonus Classics.
