One of the most exciting singers of her generation, blazing a trail not just as a soloist, but a programmer and activist, the 34-year-old American soprano is — hurrah — based in Munich, where she lives with her German conductor husband.

The last live performances she gave pre-pandemic were of Britten’s song cycle Les Illuminations, performed with the conductor Esa-Pekka Salonen. Neatly, her return to the UK is for the same piece with the same conductor (but now with the Philharmonia orchestra) in a streamed performance from the Southbank Centre, followed by two concerts, with crowds, at Snape in Suffolk.
