Friends at the ENO

Jenna Simeonov

English National Opera announced their 201515 season line-up yesterday, and making an appearance is friend, fellow COC Ensemble graduate, and stellar soprano Ambur Braid.

She’ll sing the Queen of the Night in Simon McBurney’s production of The Magic Flute, which will run for 13 performances, February 5-March 19, 2016. Allan Clayton sings Tamino, and recent COC visitor Lucy Crowe (Hercules) will sing Pamina.

The production looks spooky, and I’m more than thrilled for Ambur. Brava, friend! Click here to find a gallery of production photos from Flute’s 2013 run at ENO.
