Dame Felicity Palmer and Rosemary Clifford (mezzo)

One of the greatest singers of her generation,
famed for her absolute commitment to text and drama, Dame Felicity Palmer has
established herself as a consummate artist across an astonishing range of
repertoire. She joins young artist Rosemary Clifford for a morning of
conversation to discuss her amazing career, the paths she has taken and her
vision for the future.

Dame Felicity Palmer was born in
Cheltenham and educated at Erith Grammar School, now named Erith School. She
studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London and under Marianne
Schech's guidance at the Munich College for Music and Theatre. In April 1970,
she won first prize in the Kathleen Ferrier Memorial Scholarship. She made her
operatic debut in 1971 as Dido in Dido and Aeneas with the Kent Opera. In 1973,
she made her US debut with the Houston Grand Opera and her Metropolitan Opera
debut was in 2000 as Waltraute (Götterdämmerung). Having made her debut with
English National Opera (ENO) in 1975, her performance with the company forty
years later, as the Countess in The Queen of Spades, was widely applauded and
described as 'mesmerising' and 'astonishing'.

Opera Prelude is a small charity supporting young
professional opera singers who give lecture recitals in London. These friendly
and inclusive events will introduce you to the international opera singers of
the future by way of recitals, concerts and masterclasses.
