The mezzo-soprano Pippa Longworth is a graduate of Trinity College of Music. She went on to study at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, where she was the recipient of the Ricordi Opera Prize. She also studied at the Britten-Pears School with Peter Pears, the Académie de Maurice Ravel and at the Brereton International Music Symposium where she studied with Birgit Nillson, Renato Scotto and Thomas Hampson. As a soprano she made her professional début at the Royal Opera House as Silver Spirit in Tavener’s Therese, and has undertaken a wide variety of rôles and festival appearances. She has appeared at the BBC Proms, the Frankfurt Festival, the Centro di Musica Antica, the Aldeburgh, Covent Garden, London and Edinburgh Festivals. Her television appearances include Fiordiligi in Così fan tutte, directed by Elisabeth Schwarzkopf for BBC 2’s Music in Camera, Bach’s Coffee Cantata for RAI TV filmed in Venice and a rôle in the world première of Michael Torke’s opera King of Hearts for Channel 4. Her recordings include a prizewinning recording of Birtwistle’s Mask of Orpheus, and Gluck’s Il Parnaso. Now retrained as a mezzo, she has undertaken another repertoire of leading mezzo rôles, from Handel and Cavalli to Respighi and Britten.
