Nardus Williams stands in for soprano Mary Bevan

21 Feb 2024

At the Academy of Ancient Music’s concert on 23 February 2024, soprano replaces Mary Bevan, who has been forced to cancel because of indisposition.

Nardus Williams, who was honoured with the Rising Talent Award at the International Opera Awards 2022, has established herself as one of the most exciting and versatile young British singers of her generation. The soprano recently made her debut at the Boston Lyric Opera and performed at the Glyndebourne Festival and the BBC Proms. She will soon be recording her debut album with Italian cantatas by George Frideric Handel.

Nardus Williams received her vocal training at the International Opera School at the Royal College of Music in London, where she was the only recipient of the prestigious Kiri Te Kanawa Scholarship. She was a member of the Houston Opera Studio in the 2018/19 season. As well as Donna Anna (Don Giovanni) and the Countess (Le nozze di Figaro), her roles include Adina in L’elisir d’amore, Mimi in La Bohème and Micaëla in Carmen.
