About Alice

Established as a major star across both operatic and concert stages, mezzo-soprano Alice Coote is regarded as one of the great artists of our time. Coote has performed major roles on stages such as the Metropolitan Opera, Glyndebourne, Royal Opera House, Bayerische Staatsoper, Opéra de Paris, Wiener Staatsoper, LA Opera, Lyric Opera of Chicago and Salzburg Festival. Equally acclaimed on the concert stage, she has performed with orchestras including the London Symphony Orchestra, Boston Symphony Orchestra, New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Kammerphilharmonie Bremen, The Hallé and The Concertgebouw.

Engagements in the 23/24 season include Storge Jephtha  at the Royal Opera House, Mahler Symphony No. 3 with Robin Ticciati and the London Philharmonic Orchestra, Beethoven Symphony No. 9 and Mass in C Minor with Dinis Sousa and the Monteverdi Choir and Orchestra, Mahler Symphony No. 3 with Michael Tilson Thomas and the Danish National Symphony.

Coote’s recent operatic engagements included Madame de Croissy Dialogues des Carmélites  at the Metropolitan Opera, title role in Handel  Agrippina  at Staatsoper Hamburg and Mère Marie in Poulenc  Dialogues des Carmélites  at Opernhaus Zürich.

Driven by her passion for exploring and challenging gender stereotypes in characterisation, Coote is renowned for her interpretations of some of opera's most important male and female roles, including; Dejanira  Hercules, Leonore  La Favorite, the title role in  Carmen, Charlotte  Werther, Dorabella  Così fan tutte, Lucretia  The Rape of Lucretia, Marguerite  La damnation de Faust, Penelope Ulysses, Octavian  Der Rosenkavalier, Composer Ariadne auf Naxos, Orfeo Orfeo ed Euridice, Idamante Idomeneo, Poppea and Nerone L’incoronazione di Poppea, Hänsel  Hänsel und Gretel, Sesto and Vitelia  La clemenza di Tito,  Sesto  Giulio Cesare,  Maffio Orsini  Lucrezia Borgia,  Le Prince Charmant  Cendrillon,  Ruggiero  Alcina  and the title role in  Ariodante.

The recital platform is central to her musical life, and she has performed throughout the UK, Europe and the US. Engagements have included; Wigmore Hall (where she has been a resident artist), the BBC Proms, Edinburgh International Festival, The Concertgebouw, Vienna Konzerthaus, Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall and the The Stars of the White Nights Mariinsky Festival in St Petersburg among many other prestigious venues with regular recital partners such as Julius Drake, Graham Johnson and Christian Blackshaw. Committed to audience development and redefining genre barriers, last season Coote premiered her latest project, 'The Rebellious Recital', a song recital including works by Mahler, David Bowie, Joni Mitchell, Bach and John Lennon at the Wigmore Hall.
