Jane Eaglen

Jane Eaglen has one of the most formidable reputations in the opera world today. Born in Lincoln, she studied at the Royal Northern College of Music, where she was supported by a Peter Moores Foundation scholarship, and went on to sing at English National Opera. Enjoying unique success in the contrasting roles of Norma and Brünnhilde, hers is a dramatic soprano of outstanding achievement earning spectacular reviews worldwide. Her performances as Brünnhilde (Siegfried) for the Lyric Opera of Chicago and her subsequent complete Ring there, with Riccardo Muti at La Scala, Milan, in San Francisco and in Vienna gained equally fine reviews. Previous portrayals of Brünnhilde include those for Opera Pacific and Scottish Opera. Her success as Norma for Scottish Opera (in a production supported by the Peter Moores Foundation) was followed by critically acclaimed performances at the Ravenna Festival with Muti, for Seattle Opera, Los Angeles Opera, at the Bastille, Paris, and Scottish Opera. Other memorable operatic performances include Isolde in Seattle, repeated at the Metropolitan Opera and the Lyric Opera of Chicago to formidable reviews; her role debut as La Gioconda for the Lyric Opera of Chicago; Donna Anna (Don Giovanni) at the Metropolitan Opera – previously performed for Vienna State Opera and in Los Angeles, Munich and Bologna; the title role in Turandot at The Royal Opera, the Metropolitan Opera with Pavarotti, in Vienna, Madrid, Seattle, Bologna and at the Bastille, Paris; Amelia (Un ballo in maschera) in Bologna and at the Bastille; the title role in Tosca for English National Opera, the Teatro Colon in Buenos Aires, and in concert with the Cleveland Symphony Orchestra; and the title role in Ariadne auf Naxos for English National Opera. Equally at home on the concert platform engagements include Verdi’s Requiem with Simon Rattle and the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra; Mahler’s Eighth Symphony with Klaus Tennstedt; Act III of Götterdämmerung with Bernard Haitink and the Boston Symphony Orchestra; Nabucco in Ravenna with Riccardo Muti; Gurrelieder with Claudio Abbado at the Salzburg and Edinburgh Festivals; Norma in concert at the Tivoli Festival in Copenhagen and at Carnegie Hall; and Strauss’s Four Last Songs with Daniel Barenboim and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Jane Eaglen’s recordings include a disc of arias by Wagner and Bellini, another with arias by Strauss and Mozart, Mahler’s Eighth Symphony, Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Bruckner’s Mass, Norma, Medea in Corinto for Opera Rara, and, for Chandos / Peter Moores Foundation the award-winning Tosca, and Aida.
