Hanna Hipp, mezzo-soprano, with Emma Abbate, piano - Folklore
An exploration of folk songs from different countries, including work by Poulenc, Britten and de Falla.
A graduate of the Jette Parker Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House, Polish mezzo-soprano Hanna Hipp has been described as a singer who ‘lights up the stage’ (Opera Britannia). Hanna’s 2017/18 season is a busy one. She returns to Bergen Opera as Emilia in Verdi’s Otello, and to Seattle Opera for Dorabella in Mozart’s Cosi fan tutte and her role debut as Beatrice in Berlioz’s Beatrice and Benedict. She makes her house debut at Teatro Real de Madrid before coming to Garsington Opera in summer 2018. Hanna is also an accomplished concert artist with past performances at the London Handel Festival and festivals across Europe.
Pianist, Emma Abbate, enjoys a demanding career as an accompanist and chamber musician, working with some of the finest singers and instrumentalists of her generation. She has performed in duo recitals for international festivals and at many prestigious UK venues, in addition to broadcasts on BBC Radio 3.
From Naples, now based in London, Emma is a professor at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama and a staff coach at the Royal Opera House.
