Bio

Mezzo-soprano Rosie Middleton specialises in contemporary music and music-theatre. A versatile singing actress, she performs internationally, with recent and upcoming performances in Reykjavik, Paris, Murcia, Luxembourg and Banff. She works with many living composers and is an experienced improviser and deviser.

Rosie made her Royal Opera House debut at the Linbury Theatre in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland. As co-founder of Aequitas Collective, an Anglo-Icelandic contemporary music group, she collaborated with Icelandic Opera in the development of #EchoChamber. She performed in A Certain Sense of Order (Kontz and Tick Tock) at Tête à Tête Festival, and in Emily Howard’s Ada Sketches. She has co-created new works with Hanbury and Groves and performed the world premiere of Hunger by Joanna Ward with Helios Collective.

Rosie performs core 20th-century repertoire including Boulez Le Marteau sans maître, Berio Sequenza III, Berberian Stripsody and in 2013 performed Pierrot Lunaire as part of the Southbank Centre’s The Rest is Noise festival.

Equally at home on the operatic stage, roles include Mother and Hatter/Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and Rose/Lakmé (Christine Collins Young Artist) for Opera Holland Park, Third Lady and Papagena/The Magic Flute at the Soho Theatre, Cherubino/The Marriage of Figaro for Opera Up Close, and Betty Doxy/A Beggar’s Opera for the European Opera Centre.

Rosie graduated from the Royal Northern College of Music as an Annie Ridyard scholar with a Masters in Opera.

Highlights of 2018 include the world premiere of #EchoChamber in Reykjavik, performances at Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity as part of the Resonant Bodies residency and a new electronic work for voice, co-created with Daniel Lee Chappell.
