Ciara Hendrick (mezzo-soprano)

Ciara Hendrick studied at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and Strasbourg Opera Studio. Specializing in early music, Hendrick was selected as one of the Early Opera Company’s Emerging Singers and named one of Göttingen’s Rising Stars. Notable appearances include Fortuna and Valetto in The Coronation of Poppea (Opera North, Laurence Cummings), La Messaggera in L’Orfeo (I Fagiolini), Médée furieuse (Early Opera Company, music by Bernier and Charpentier), Aréthuse in Charpentier’s Actéon (Early Opera Company), Hermia in The Fairy Queen (conducted by Christian Curnyn), Daniel in Handel’s Susanna (Göttingen Handel Festival, Laurence Cummings) and her harpsichord debut at the Handel House in The Devil to Pay on Brook Street (Laurence Cummings).

Hendrick is much in demand as a recitalist: highlights include appearances with Le Concert d’Astrée, Repicco, Solomon’s Knot and La Nuova Musica. Among her recordings are Venus in Pepusch’s Venus and Adonis (Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen), Juno in Daniel Purcell’s The Judgement of Paris (Spiritato) and a world premiere recording of music by Lotti (Syred Consort).
