Description:

Part of the Tichio-Finnie Vocal Master Class Series

“Barton’s mezzo has a juicy bite and a fierce chest register… and is probably still reverberating around the auditorium right now,” declares Bachtrack of her Royal Opera House Covent Garden portrayal of Azucena in Il trovatore. A recipient of the Beverly Sills Artist Award and Richard Tucker Award, Barton was named 2020 Personality of the Year at the BBC Music Magazine Awards. During the 2023-24 season, she appears in the world premiere of Jake Heggie and Gene Scheer’s Intelligence at Houston Grand Opera, brings her acclaimed interpretation of Amneris to Lyric Opera of Chicago’s Aida, and performs Arnold Schönberg’s Gurre-Lieder in a gala concert for the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra’s 75th anniversary. Offstage, Barton is recognized for using her powerful voice to spark conversations about body positivity, social justice, and LGBTQ+ rights, and she is a proud volunteer for Turn The Spotlight—an organization working to identify, nurture, and empower leaders among women and people of color.
