Soprano Una Barry has enjoyed a busy career down the years whereby her extensive repertoire as a true lyric soprano from the baroque right through to the present day, her outstanding musical ability, and her vocal versatility have enabled her to accept solo engagements and broadcasts all over Britain, Ireland and Continental Europe as well as in Australia, Finland, Hong Kong, New York and Kenya.

This lyric repertoire covers the operatic stage with her time at Kent Opera and Scottish Opera in roles such as The Governess in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw, First Lady in Mozart’s The Magic Flute, Aminta in Mozart’s Il Rè Pastore and The Priestess in Gluck’s Iphigenie in Tauris at the Edinburgh International Festival as well as covers of more major roles. She also sang the lead role in Alison Cox’s The Time Killing and Brian Hughes’s Stars and Shadows in Manchester. She has also given many highly acclaimed and interesting song recital programmes, ranging from Purcell to Messiaen and to more contemporary music. But having retired from staged opera, Una now concentrates in oratorio and concert repertoire for which she is best known and continues to be in demand. Read expanded bio…
