Irish soprano Anna Devin is widely admired for her “impeccable Baroque style” (Bachtrack), and “vocal control...artistry and musico-dramatic intelligence” (Opera News). In the 2019-20 season she performed Almirena in Handel’s Rinaldo with Glyndebourne on tour and Michal in Handel’s Saul at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris.
The 2018/19 season began with her Opernhaus Zurich debut as Rosane Vivaldi’s La verità in cimento, followed by her return to Teatro Real, Madrid, to perform the title role in Cavalli’s La Calisto and her Irish National Opera debut in Mozart’s The Magic Flute. Her concerts include a Handel programme with the Irish Baroque Orchestra, Handel’s Messiah with the Royal Northern Sinfonia, the Irish Baroque Orchestra and at the Albert Hall with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, a New Year’s Day concert with the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Mendelssohn’s Symphony No 2 (Lobgesang) with the Irish Chamber Orchestra, Handel’s Esther with the Irish Baroque Orchestra and Handel’s Athalia at the London Handel Festival. She will also make her recital debut at the West Cork Chamber Music Festival with Joseph Middelton. Next season she will return to Glyndebourne to sing Almirena in Handel’s Rinaldo, followed by debuts at the Châtelet in Paris as Michal in Handel’s Saul and Komische Opera Berlin as Iphis in a new production by Richard Jones of Handel’s Jephtha. In addition to her work on stage, she is proud to be an Ambassador for the British Dyslexia Association. She is passionate about nurturing new talent and has given masterclasses at the Royal Irish Academy of Music as well as coaching at the Royal Academy Opera Course, London. When not on stage, she is a keen runner and enjoys keeping fit and relaxing with her husband, young daughter and a Norwegian Forest Cat in their Bedfordshire home.
