Barbara Hannigan

  • Soprano


Barbara Hannigan, a brilliant Canadian soprano, has forged a unique career at the very highest level. Her captivating, pre-eminent performances of twentieth and twenty-first century repertoire - she has given over 75 world premieres - have won new audiences for contemporary music.

Widely acclaimed for her interpretations of Ligeti, Barbara Hannigan has made Mysteries of the Macabre, a tour de force for soprano and orchestra, a signature work, which she has sung - and also conducted - at Lincoln Center, Berlin Philharmonie, Théâtre du Châtelet, Salzburger Festspiele, Los Angeles’ Disney Hall, the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, and the Vienna Konzerthaus. Her operatic repertory has also recently expanded to include George Benjamin’s Written on Skin, created for the Aix-en-Provence Festival in July 2012.
