New Artist – Wendy Dawn Thompson

We are delighted that mezzo soprano Wendy Dawn Thompson has joined our artist roster for general management. Wendy studied at the University of Wellington, Royal Northern College of Music and Royal College of Music. She is a former Dame Malvina Major Emerging Artist at New Zealand Opera, winner of the 2003 Kathleen Ferrier Award and in 2005 was a finalist at BBC Cardiff Singer of the World, representing New Zealand.

Her engaging performances in a wide-ranging repertoire have made her a favourite with both audiences and critics, whether she’s playing the role of Teresa Salieri in Amadeus at the National Theatre of Great Britain; Charlotte in Werther at Vilnius City Opera; or Magdalena in Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg at the Edinburgh International Festival.
