Jamie Barton will debut as Jezibaba in an imaginative new Mary Zimmerman production of Dvorak's Rusalka and bring her celebrated Fenena to the Met stage alongside Plácido Domingo as the title character in Nabucco. Both productions will be Met Live in HD broadcasts in cinemas worldwide.
"Barton is dazzling as Fenena, with a showstopper Act IV aria that displayed the lyricism and agility of this remarkable voice." Jamie Barton sings her first Fenena in Nabucco, a role that will also serve as her Royal Opera House Covent Garden debut this season.
“My first instinct is to go for a very sympathetic Fenena. I’m a big believer in bringing beauty into the story when I can." Ahead of her Seattle Opera debut, Jamie Barton talks to the Seattle Times about Fenena, Wagner, and her roll-out-of-bed-and-sing music.
