Zankel Hall
San Jose’s Mercury News asked a poignant question about Jamie Barton: “Is there anything this artist can’t sing?” Judging by her meteoric rise to the top tier of mezzo-sopranos, the answer is a resounding “no.” She has dazzled audiences around the world in operas that span the bel canto of Bellini to Wagner and concert music from Brahms to Elgar. Musical Toronto wrote, “The moment she opened her mouth, my jaw (figuratively) dropped.” Be prepared for a similar experience when she comes to Carnegie Hall.
