British-American soprano Claire Galloway’s theatricality covers the gamut of “palpable pain” and “splendid, funny moments” (B.I.T.R.). She has performed such roles as Dinah in Bernstein’s Trouble in Tahiti, Contessa in Le Nozze di Figaro, and Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni. She has also premiered roles in Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park and Frances Pollock’s award-winning opera Stinney, which will also be presented in the 2019 Prototype Festival. In past seasons, Ms. Galloway has performed with Baltimore Concert Opera, the Savannah Voice Festival, Bel Cantanti Opera, and Stillpointe Theatre.
This season she will present a recital based on the life of Rosa Ponselle at the elegant George Peabody Library. Ms. Galloway is curator of the related exhibit of Ponselle’s own piano, gowns, and photographs at the Peabody Institute, where she currently teaches.
An avid recitalist, Ms. Galloway’s innovative programing has resulted in the best attended concert event at the Baltimore War Memorial Arts Initiative in past seasons.
A frequent soloist with Concert Artists of Baltimore, Ms. Galloway has also performed concert and oratorio works with Bach in Baltimore, the American Symphony Orchestra, and the Peabody Concert Orchestra.
