Raphaela Papadakis Soprano

London-born soprano Raphaela Papadakis made her professional début at Garsington Opera in 2014, giving the “most attractive solo performance” of the show (Financial Times). Since then, she has performed with the Royal Opera House (cover Nymph, Orfeo), Independent Opera (Anna, Biedermann and the Arsonists), and the Berlin State Opera (cover Branghien, Le vin herbé). A passionate recitalist, Raphaela made her début at Carnegie Hall in 2014, and was a Vocal Fellow at the Ravinia Festival, Chicago. Her many awards include 1st prizes at the Mozart Competition, Clonter Opera Competition, and the Maureen Lehane Vocal Awards, and the York Early Music Festival Prize at the London Handel Festival. She is a Samling, IMA, and City Music Foundation Artist, and a winner of the Making Music Award for Young Concert Artists. She studied at Clare College, Cambridge, graduating with a first-class degree in English Literature, and at the Guildhall with Janice Chapman.

Recently featured as a ‘new face’ in the Telegraph, James Cheung has worked with some of the most exciting artists today, notably the German Baritone Christian Gerhaher. Recent and forthcoming performances include Winterreise and Britten’s Winter Words with Ian Bostridge, recitals with Ruby Hughes, Lawrence Power and Joan Rodgers at St John’s Smith Square, Jonathan McGovern at the Wigmore Hall for the Kirckman Concert Society, performances of the Schubert song cycles with Benjamin Appl, Marcus Farnsworth and Philip Smith, A recital in the Crush room of the Royal Opera House, Messiaen’s Quartet for the end of time at the Munich Festival as well as live broadcasts on BBC3 and BBC 2 television.  Past performances include the Aldeburgh, City of London, Endellion, Chichester and Aix en Provence Festivals as well as performances throughout Europe and Asia.
