Australian soprano, Kiandra Howarth, a member of the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme had a great success at the ROH. Blogger and opera reviewer Sarah Noble @primalamusica reporting from London ROH’s “Dialogues of the Carmelites by Poulenc-“.
Thought the Bel Canto crowd would like to hear about another Aussie success – Kiandra Howarth went on this morning as Soeur Constance in the general of Carmelites (replacing an ill Anna Prohaska) and did a truly wonderful job.
A masterclass in how to triumph as a cover – if I hadn’t known, I’d have sworn she’d been in it from the start. Can’t wait to see and hear more from her, here and elsewhere. We also had the luxury of Catherine Carby as Soeur Mathilde!’
