Park Avenue Armory

Kate Royal & Joseph Middleton

“Ms. Royal produces an attractive, fully focused sound... [and has] an ability to offset the polished surface of a trained voice with the passion and the sense of collective memory, however illusory, that folk singers bring to their art.”
The New York Times

British lyric soprano Kate Royal has generated significant excitement among fans of great singing with appearances at the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne Festival, Paris Opera, Royal Opera Covent Garden, and the English National Opera. Equally at home on the recital stage, the “elegant, thoughtful singer” (The New York Times) comes to the Armory to perform an artfully-curated selection of lieder and song by Robert and Clara Schumann, Mahler, and Samuel Barber.
