"Her voice is a revelation, easy at the top and magnificent in the middle, its timbre warm and vibrant" - Le Figaro

Susan Bisatt is one of this country's most versatile sopranos, her performing repertoire embraces early English operas by Purcell, Lampe and Dibden, mainstreams of the operatic repertoire (Mozart, Verdi and Strauss), and contemporary works by Kevin Volans, John Adams and Nigel Osborne. As a soloist Susan has worked with Opera North and ENO, and at the Edinburgh International and Almeida festivals.
She has also performed in and led education workshops at international music festivals in Paris, Helsinki, Montreal, Tbilisi, Bulgaria, Lithuania, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
She works regularly with Impropera, a pioneering improvising opera company and is a long-standing regular artist with Opera Circus for whom she has created many new roles, including the role of Mila in Nigel Osborne's "Differences in Demolitions", a hauntingly beautiful lament for Bosnia using traditional Sevdah music, which premiered in Mostar.
Her recordings include Baroque operas and Purcell sacred Music on the Hyperion and Naxos labels.
