A Gala Evening with Dame Felicity Lott
Wednesday 5th July
To officially open this year's Frome Festival we are delighted to present a Gala Evening Recital with Dame Felicity Lott. Accompanist Eugene Asti. Renowned soprano Dame Felicity Lott presents an eclectic and accessible programme of German, French and English songs by composers ranging from Schumann, Offenbach and Britten to Noel Coward.

Born in Cheltenham, Gloucestershire, Felicity has lived in Sussex since 1980. After obtaining a degree in French and Latin at Royal Holloway College, she spent several years studying singing at the Royal Academy of Music before venturing into the wide world of opera and song. Music has taken her across the globe but she owes a great debt of gratitude to Glyndebourne Festival Opera, where she spent many happy years and where she first fell in love with the Sussex countryside. At Glyndebourne she discovered the operas of Richard Strauss, and sang the rôles of Octavian, ( Der Rosenkavalier )the Countess in Capriccio, Christine in Intermezzo, and Arabella, as well as Mozart’s Countess in Le Nozze di Figaro, Pamina in Die Zauberflöte, and Elvira (Don Giovanni), Anne Trulove in The Rake’s Progress, Hanna Glawari in The Merry Widow, Lady Billows and Helena in Britten’s Albert Herring and A Midsummer Night’s Dream. At the Royal Opera House she has sung more performances of the Marschallin in Der Rosenkavalier than any other singer.

Her love of all things French has led to many recordings of French song and opera, perhaps most successfully Offenbach’s La Belle Hélène and La Grande Duchesse de Gerolstein. As well as her opera performances she has given recitals all over the world. In 2001 she was awarded the title of Chevalier de la Légion d’Honnneur. She was made a Dame in 1996 and she holds doctorates from many universities, including Oxford, London, Paris Sorbonne and Sussex.
