Following the success of last season’s SONG recitals (Ian Bostridge, Julius Drake, Christine Rice, Sophie Bevan, Ryan Wigglesworth) Deborah Warner’s next season welcomes the return of the recital series with more of the greatest names in classical music performing in the enticing intimacy of the Ustinov Studio.

Recent appearances on the operatic stage include Arsace Partenope (Madrid), Ottone Agrippina (Hamburg, Munich), Bertarido Rodelinda (Metropolitan Opera) and Ottone L’incoronazione di Poppea (Versailles).
