BIOGRAPHY

Born in Staffordshire, Lucy Crowe is rapidly establishing herself as one of the leading lyric sopranos of her generation. She studied at the Royal Academy of Music, and was awarded the Gold Medal of the Royal Over-Seas League in 2002 and second prize at the Kathleen Ferrier Awards in 2005. In demand on opera and concert stages as well as in recital halls, she has sung with The English Concert under Andrew Manze and Laurence Cummings, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment under Richard Egarr, The Sixteen under Harry Christophers, The King’s Consort under Robert King, the City of London Sinfonia under Richard Hickox and Trevor Pinnock, the Gabrieli Consort & Players under Paul McCreesh, the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under Sakari Oramo, and the Scottish Chamber Orchestra under Sir Charles Mackerras. She made her debuts with Scottish Opera as Sophie (Der Rosenkavalier), returning to sing Nannetta (Falstaff), and with English National Opera as Poppea (Agrippina), where she has also sung Drusilla (The Coronation of Poppea). For Garsington Opera she has sung Susanna (Le nozze di Figaro) and Elisa (Il re pastore), and at Opera North has appeared as Michal (Handel’s Saul) and Susanna. Lucy Crowe has given recitals at festivals and venues across the United Kingdom, and for Chandos has recorded the part of Belinda in Purcell’s Dido and Aeneas.
