Georgia Jarman has given many distinguished performances in the lyric coloratura repertoire throughout the United States and Europe, and recently made an outstanding debut for English National Opera singing all four heroines in Richard Jones’ acclaimed production of The Tales of Hoffmann.
A sought-after artist in bel canto repertoire, she has made numerous appearances at the Caramoor Music Festival with the Orchestra of St. Luke’s including, most recently, her acclaimed role debut as Gilda (Rigoletto), as well as Amenaide (Tancredi) alongside Ewa Podles, Norina (Don Pasquale) and Amina (La sonnambula). Other bel canto roles include Marie (La fille du regiment) and Giulietta (I capuleti e i montecchi) for Florentine Opera, Mathilde (Guillaume Tell) at the Teatr Wielki in Warsaw and her first Lucia (Lucia di Lammermoor) for Atlanta Opera.
This season Georgia makes her debut at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden as Roxana in Kasper Holten’s new production of Szymanowski’s Król Roger under Sir Antonio Pappano – also marking her debut in the role. Additionally, she returns to the role of Gilda for her debut with Santa Fe Opera in Lee Blakely’s new production of Rigoletto. Further season highlights include her debut for Opéra National de Bordeaux as Musetta in La bohème and, in an ambitious concert and recording project with Florentine Opera, as Cathy in Carlisle Floyd’s Wuthering Heights.
Notable previous successes include Maria Stuarda for Washington Concert Opera, Manon at Malmö Opera, and the roles of Violetta (La traviata), Mimi (La bohème), Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), Micaela (Carmen) and Nedda (Pagliacci) – which have led to invitations from Den Nye Opera, New Orleans Opera, Dallas Opera, Florida Grand Opera and Palm Beach Opera.
Building an increasing reputation in later repertoire, Georgia Jarman has recently added the role of Ellen Orford (Peter Grimes) which she performed at Grange Park Opera, as well as the taxing role of Madame Mao (Nixon in China) for Cincinnati Opera and Eurydice in Philip Glass’ Orphée for Portland Opera (recorded on the Orange Mountain Music label).
