Soprano

  • Soprano Verity Wingate is fast establishing herself as one of Europe’s most promising young stars, renowned for her “vocally and theatrically breathtaking performances” (Trouw) and her “luminous soprano” (Peter Hagmann).

  • In 2023/24, Wingate will make a series of debuts including at Oper Frankfurt, as Contessa d’Almaviva Le nozze di Figaro, at Staatsoper Hamburg, as Micaëla Carmen, and in London’s Royal Festival Hall as Wellgunde in Götterdämmerung with London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.


    Last season, Wingate made her role and house debut as Contessa d’Almaviva in Mozart Le nozze di Figaro for Malmö Opera to much critical acclaim: “Wingate’s warm soprano soars with the orchestra’s air under her wings. Then time stands still not only on stage but in the auditorium” (Sydsvenskan). She made her role and house debut as the title role in Tchaikovsky Iolanta at Konzert Theater Bern under the baton of Nicholas Carter, for which her performance has been noted as giving “goosebumps moments” (Die Junge Buehne) and “an impressive, youthful Iolanta” (Jungfrau Zeitung).


    Other highlights include her debut with the English National Opera as Mrs. Naidoo in Philip Glass Satyagraha and the roles of Mimi La bohème (Nederlandse Reisopera) and the Governess The Turn of the Screw (Garsington Opera). On the concert stage, highlights have included recitals, galas and concerts at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Leipzig Gewandhaus, Lincoln Center, Barbican Centre, Wigmore Hall, St. John’s Smith Square, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, Holywell Music Room Oxford, and Aldeburgh Festival.


    Wingate is an alumna of the Opera Studio at Dutch National Opera, where roles included Anna Nabucco (alongside Anna Pirozzi) and Luisa Casati Stampa di Soncino in the world premiere of Willem Jeths Ritratto (BBC Music Magazine’s Opera Choice for February 2021). In 2021, Wingate was selected for the Salzburg Festival Young Singers Project, where she performed the role of Die Schleppträgerin in Krzysztof Warlikowski’s production of Elektra conducted by Franz Welser-Möst and won second prize at the prestigious Hans Gabor Belvedere Singing Competition.

“Verity Wingate’s portrayal of the Governess’s ambiguous, repressed desires was a triumph.”

Opera Magazine, September 2022

“Verity Wingate's warm soprano soars with the orchestra's air under her wings. Then time stands still not only on stage but also in the auditorium.”

Sydsvenskan, December 2022

“Unsurpassed star of the evening is the soprano Verity Wingate, who performs on stage from start to finish and seemingly effortlessly puts her vocal part into the spotlight."

Theater Krant, October 2020
