About Lucy

Lucy Crowe's 2024/25 season includes her role debut as Malinka/Etherea/Kunka in Janáček's The Excursions of Mr Broucek at the Deutsche Staatsoper Berlin and in concert with the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle; the title role of Handel's Rodelinda at the Garsington Festival - a role she has sung in Madrid, Frankfurt, Amsterdam and on tour last season in the U.S. and Asia with The English Concert and Harry Bicket. She sings Mozart arias with the San Francisco Symphony and Bernard Labadie, Brahms German Requiem with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle, and numerous recitals at Wigmore Hall, as part of her artist focus there this season.

In concert last season she sang with Sir Simon Rattle, Sir András Schiff, Sir John Eliot Gardiner, Bernard Labadie, Harry Bicket and Maxim Emelyanychev in Munich, Esterhazy, Gdansk, Tampere, Paris, Boston, New York, Los Angeles, Beijing, Seoul and London.

With repertoire ranging from Purcell, Handel and Mozart to Verdi's Gilda and Janáček's The Cunning Little Vixen, she has sung with opera companies and orchestras throughout the world. Highlights of the last two seasons include Musetta La bohème at the Royal Opera House, Susanna Le Nozze di Figaro at The Metropolitan Opera and Pamina Die Zauberflöte at the Liceu Barcelona.

Her discography is extensive and in 2021 she received a Grammy nomination for Best Opera Recording for Janáček's The Cunning Little Vixen (title role) with the London Symphony Orchestra and Sir Simon Rattle, a BBC Music Magazine award nomination for Rodelinda (title role) with The English Concert and Harry Bicket, and released her debut recital recording for Linn Records featuring Berg, Strauss and Schoenberg.

  • Handel Rodelinda Tour

    Carnegie Hall, New York

    • She has the depth and power of a Verdi soprano, the ornaments of a Monteverdi specialist, and the stage presence of a Laurence Olivier. She acts every word and every note, often swaying and weaving her whole body or stretching out her arms like an archangel’s wings.
