In Conversation: Corinne Winters
Monday 21st May
Acclaimed by The New York Times as “an outstanding actress, as well as a singer of extraordinary grace and finesse”, American soprano Corinne Winters was most recently seen in London as Violetta in the Royal Opera House’s La traviata. She will be joined by Mark Pullinger, contributor to Opera magazine and editor of Bachtrack, to speak about her pathway to opera, career highlights, and upcoming roles.
