THE ARTS ASSOCIATION OF EAST ALABAMA PRESENTS
The Opelika Center For The Performing Arts
JAMIE BARTON, a 35-year-old native of Rome, Georgia, has taken the opera world by storm with her voluptuous mezzo-soprano sound, and charming down-home personality. Now having won the $50,000 Richard Tucker Award (the Heisman Trophy of opera!) and the Metropolitan Opera National Council auditions; and the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World competition, and the Marian Anderson award, and a Grammy nomination – she’s only getting started!
OCTOBER 9, 2016
Between starring roles and concerts in opera houses around the world, Barton lives in Atlanta with her cat, River.
The New Yorker has called Jamie Barton “a once-in-a-generation” talent with her rich, three-octave range. Seeing – and hearing – is definitely believing!
For her performance here, Jamie will be accompanied by British pianist, Jamie Baillieu.
