Gramophone describes Miriam Allan’s singing as ‘enchanting’ and ‘impressive’, with audiences around the world engaged by her honesty and ‘depictions of sublime hope’ in places of darkness and sorrow. She has been fortunate to work with many of the finest directors including Sir John Eliot Gardiner, William Christie, Laurence Cummings, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Nicholas Collon and Roy Goodman. Her engagements with the Monteverdi Choir, Les Violons du Roy, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Concerto
Copenhagen, Auckland Philharmonic, Gewandhaus Kammerchor, Israel Camerata and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra have seen her in concerts of Mozart, Monteverdi, Rameau, Bach, Handel and Haydn to mention but a few.
On the opera stage Miriam has appeared in productions for Opéra Comique, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Pinchgut Opera and Les Arts Florissants featuring Purcell, Cavalli, Handel, Vivaldi and Rameau. Equally at home in contemporary repertoire, Miriam has enjoyed working with Sinfonia Australis
and more recently with the outstanding Aurora Orchestra in London. An award-winning Monteverdi project with Les Arts Florissants under Paul Agnew’s direction featured every Monteverdi madrigal and a staged production of Orfeo in 2017 moved to the music of Gesualdo the following year. The same season she returned to Pinchgut Opera in Sydney to sing Josabeth in Athalia. Recently Miriam made her debut with the London Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by Sir Roger Norrington. 2019 sees her
return to sing with the Dunedin Consort for concerts of Bach.
