Lucy Crowe, leading lyric soprano and outstanding in her generation, makes a welcome return to Temple Music. Having received exceptional reviews as Poppea in the Royal Opera House production of Handel’s Agrippina, her performance of Strauss’s sublimely beautiful Four Last Songs and Berg’s Seven Early Songs, written before he embraced serialism and inspired by Strauss, Mahler and Debussy, is keenly anticipated.


Crowe’s voice always had bags more soul than your average soubrette. There’s real moral force to her singing, and it was the evening’s most beautiful too.” Opera Now
