Nardus Williams returns to Glyndebourne

Tue 22 June 2021

The TL alum and soprano will join the cast of The Rake’s Progress this autumn.

Stravinsky and W.H Auden’s opera is set to return for the first time in a decade, with Nardus in the role of Tom Rakewell’s betrothed, Anne Trulove. Directed by John Cox, it will be performed first at Glyndebourne before touring to Canterbury, Milton Keynes, Norwich and Liverpool.

The first singer to win Trinity Laban’s Gold Medal competition, Nardus Williams graduated with a BMus (Hons) Voice in 2014. She has since accumulated numerous opera credits, including Countess Le Nozze di Figaro for Opera Holland Park, Mimi La Boheme for English National Opera’s Drive & Live series, Ciboulette In the Market for Love for the Glyndebourne Tour, and the world premiere of Belinda Dido’s Ghost, a co-commission with the Dunedin Consort, Mahogany Opera & The Barbican.

The Rake’s Progress will be at Glyndebourne 23, 27, 30 October 2021.
