Mezzo Soprano, Rosel Labone

Mezzo-soprano Rosel Labone has performed opera, oratorio, and concert repertoire at venues throughout Australasia with Opera Australia, New Zealand Opera, the Song Company, the Consort of Melbourne, and the Kronos Quartet.

Internationally she has performed the lead role of Lois in the world premiere of Last Year in Samsonville at the National Opera Center in New York. 

In the 2020–2021 season, she was offered lead roles with Boulder Opera Colorado (Marcellina in Nozze di Figaro) and Opera Kensington (Gypsy Queen in Balfe’s Bohemian Girl) in Europe. 

Other operatic roles include Donna Elvira in Don Giovanni, Jenny in The Threepenny Opera, Galatea in Acis and Galatea, and the Mother in Hansel and Gretel.

Ms Labone’s distinctive timbre and dramatic intensity have allowed her to traverse a wide range of styles and genres in her career to date. Her diverse creative background combines with a broad theatrical and vocal range, flair and musicality to create captivating moments on stage.

The program of opera arias and songs includes the well-loved Carmen arias along with the most beautiful arias from Samson and Delilah, Verdi’s Don Carlo, Gounod’s Cinq Mars, Mozart’s La Clemenza di Tito and Handel’s Ariodante.

The concert also features the premiere performance of a new song cycle The Seasons by the local ‘new romantic’ composer Lindsay McGregor. 

The songs are inspired by Richard Strauss and the nature poems of John Greenleaf Whittier.
