“…There are no soft edges to Lomas’s streetwise Vixen; she sings with assaulting beauty and directness, thrusting her performance in your face with not the smallest doubt of its quality.”
ALEXANDRA COGHLAN  OPERA

“…The main sell, though, is Rosie Lomas’s lithe Vixen. Flame-haired, sharp-boned and full of vitality, she demonstrates that…she owns the part…”
HANNAH NEPIL  FINANCIAL TIMES

“…Rosie Lomas is simply magnetic as the Vixen…”

Rosie Lomas made her operatic début as the thirteen-year-old American Suburban Girl in English National Opera’s world première production of Two Boys by Nico Muhly.

For her début at Madrid’s Teatro Real she performed the two children’s roles of Lucy and Josh in the world première of Philip Glass’s The Perfect American, roles she went on to repeat in the Australian première with Opera Queensland in the Brisbane Festival, and in the UK première at ENO, where she returned to sing Maketaten in the revival of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten.

Rosie Lomas’s operatic engagements have also taken her to the Festival di Spoleto, the Beethoven Festival in Warsaw, Opera Holland Park, Longborough Festival Opera and Ad Parnassum both in London and on tour in Europe.

Also in her operatic repertoire are Flora The Turn of the Screw, First Witch and Second Woman Dido and Aeneas, Cupid Venus and Adonis, Oberto Alcina and First Spirit The Magic Flute.

Rosie Lomas’s major concert engagements have included Handel’s Solomon with countertenor James Bowman in a celebratory concert in aid of The Foundling Hospital, and Haydn Nelson Mass with Choir of the Twenty First Century at Christ Church, Spitalfields, London.  She was a finalist in the London Bach Society Singing Competition and sang in Andreas Scholl Master Classes as a Britten Pears Young Artist.

Last Summer she performed the title role in ‘Vixen’ – a treatment of Janáček’s Cunning Little Vixen for Silent Opera in collaboration with ENO, for which she received considerable acclaim.  “…There are no soft edges to Lomas’s streetwise Vixen; she sings with assaulting beauty and directness, thrusting her performance in your face with not the smallest doubt of its quality…” (OPERA Magazine)

Forthcoming opera engagements include her return to ENO for further performances as Maketaten in the revival of Philip Glass’s Akhnaten, and her return to Longborough Festival Opera as Valetto L’incoronazione di Poppea.

Rosie Lomas studied at the Guildhall School of Music & Drama in London where she graduated with a distinction in her final recital.
