"If one proper definition of 'diva' is someone who exhibits unimpeachable musical authority, Sarah Connolly qualifies in a big way." (Opera News) The distinguished British mezzo-soprano makes her SF Performances debut with a program that illustrates her mastery of direct, powerful engagement of the audience.

She is a Fellow of the Royal College of Music where she studied piano and singing. She has been nominated for a Laurence Olivier Award, a TMA Award, two Grammy Awards and won an Edison, Gramophone and South Bank Awards. On the operatic stage, highlights include The Composer at The Metropolitan Opera, New York, Dido at La Scala and Giulio Cesare at Glyndebourne. Her concert and recital programmes have also taken her around the world including the Carnegie Hall, Dresden Staatskapelle and The Concertgebouw, Amsterdam. Sarah Connolly was made a Commander of the British Empire in the 2010 New Year Honours.
