Hailed as a “rather special mezzo” (MusicWeb International), Helen Charlston’s warm and distinctive tone has cemented her as a key performer in the next generation of British singers.

She received first prize in the 2018 Handel Singing Competition, was a finalist in the Hurn Court Opera Competition, and in the upcoming season she will make her debut with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic (Handel Messiah) and a return to Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra (Bach St Matthew Passion).

Other 2018-19 season highlights include performances as Kings Place, St John’s Smith Square, Halle Handel Festival, and York Early Music Festival. Her operatic roles include First Witch (Purcell Dido and Aeneas – Wigmore Hall), Olga (Tchaikovsky Eugene Onegin), and Florence Pike (Britten Albert Herring). Helen has also created the roles of Anna (Tom Smail Blue Electric – Tête à Tête) and Dido (Rhiannon Randle Dido is Dead).
