A PERFECT EXPONENT OF BEL CANTO 

Hailed by the New-York Times as one of the leading sopranos of her generation, Jessica Pratt possesses outstanding poise and agility in the art of bel canto. British by birth, she spent her childhood in Australia where she learned the trumpet for ten years before devoting herself exclusively to singing. Turning towards Europe after having won the Australian Singing Competition, she then continued her studies in Rome under the supervision of Renata Scotto.

 

A BRILLIANT CAREER

In 2007, her career took off following a sublime Lucia di Lammermoor which opened the doors of the grand theatres for her. The whole world praised her Lucia as one of the best ever. Jessica Pratt was sought by all the major conductors and performed with Kent Nagano, Sir Colin Davis, Christian Thielemann, Carlo Rizzi, etc., to resounding success, publicised enthusiastically by the press.

Lucia, Amina, Violetta, Gilda, and many others no longer hold any secrets for her.
