Miriam Allan

Soprano

Gramophone describes Miriam Allan’s singing as “enchanting” and “impressive” with audiences around the world engaged by her honesty and “depictions of sublime hope” in places of darkness and sorrow. She has been fortunate to work with many of the finest directors including Sir John Eliot Gardiner, William Christie, Laurence Cummings, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Nicholas Collon and Roy Goodman.  Her engagements with the Monteverdi Choir, Les Violons du Roy, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Concerto Copenhagen, Auckland Philharmonic, Gewandhaus Kammerchor, Israel Camerata and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra have seen her in concerts of Mozart, Monteverdi, Rameau, Bach, Handel and Haydn to mention but a few.  On the opera stage Miriam has appeared in productions for the Opéra Comique, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Pinchgut Opera and for Les Arts Florissants featuring Purcell, Cavalli, Handel, Vivaldi and Rameau.  Equally at home in contemporary repertoire, Miriam has enjoyed working with Sinfonia Australis and more recently with the outstanding Aurora Orchestra in London.  An award-winning Monteverdi project with Les Arts Florissants under Paul Agnew’s direction featured every madrigal Monteverdi wrote and a staged production of Orfeo in 2017 now moves to the music of Gesualdo from the autumn of 2018.  Recently Miriam made her debut with the Academy of Ancient Music in a concert performance of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea in Venice; with Dunedin Consort for concerts of Bach and Handel.  She returns to Pinchgut Opera in Sydney to sing Josabeth in Athalia in May 2018.
