Janis Kelly is a renowned soprano, with a career spanning opera, song, theatre and radio.

Heralded as a “singing actress of near genius” (Sunday Times) who “has such natural grace and emotional eloquence that she cannot fail to touch the heart” (Independent), soprano Janis Kelly originated the title role of Rufus Wainwright’s Prima Donna at the Manchester International Festival, with subsequent performances in London, Toronto and Portland; in concert at ROH and Teatro Real‚ Madrid‚ and now available on CD (Deutsche Grammophon). At the opera’s debut, the Financial Times summed: “In the Callas-like title role Janis Kelly gives the performance of her life.”Janis has appeared at the Metropolitan Opera, the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Glyndebourne Festival Opera and many more opera houses, concert stages around the globe.

We are delighted to welcome Janis to Sheffield for a Masterclass and a recital with pianist David Barnard. They will share a small selection of some remarkable songs by Mozart, Schumann and Burns.
