Canadian soprano Ambur Braid is quickly establishing herself as a rising young artist in dramatic coloratura soprano roles that encompass Donizetti’s Lucia di Lammermoor, Massenet’s Esclarmonde and Mozart’s Queen of Night. Her appearance at ENO in The Magic Flute as the Queen of Night marks her UK debut.
Currently for ENO:
Queen of the Night The Magic Flute
Notable engagements elsewhere:
Ambur made her debut at Teatro de São Carlos in Lisbon as Anne Truelove in a new production of The Rake’s Progress conducted by Joana Carneiro. Other engagements include Konstanze Die Entführung aus dem Serail (Opéra Atelier) and Violetta La traviata (Arizona Opera). She covered the role of Elisabetta Roberto Devereux and the title role in Semele (Canadian Opera Company). In her final season as a member of the ensemble at the Canadian Opera Company, she was seen in Christopher Alden’s new production of Die Fledermaus as Adele in which the Toronto Star called her ‘sexy, sparky, sensational’ and performed the role of Vitellia in the Ensemble Studio performance of La clemenza di Tito.
