About

Soprano Elena Xanthoudakis is joined by the Northern Sinfonia in the expert hands of bel canto specialist Richard Bonynge in these exhilarating performances of some true gems of the Bel Canto aria tradition.

Originally a flautist, Elena Xanthoudakis studied music at the University of Melbourne and the Guildhall School of Music, and joined the young artist programme of Maggio Musicale di Firenze, Italy. Elena has received a Solti Foundation Grant as well as many first prizes in competitions and is currently a Borletti-Buitoni Trust artist [2011].

Recent successes include her return to English National Opera as Pamina in 'Die Zauberflöte', the Royal Festival Hall with the RPO for 'Carmina Burana' and performances of Mozart’s 'Requiem' with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra. Highlights also include her debut at Glyndebourne Festival Opera as Clorinda, La Cenerentola. She has sung the roles of both Lisa and Amina in 'La Sonnambula' at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, conducted by Daniel Oren.
