Eqyptian soprano Fatma Said has not only distinguished herself in opera houses and on concert stages, but also in a humanitarian capacity, regularly representing her home country as an ambassador for culture and education.

She is currently a BBC Radio 3 New Generation Artist and in 2016, she made her sensational role debut at Teatro alla Scala as Pamina in Peter Stein’s critically-acclaimed new production of Die Zauber?öte, conducted by Adam Fischer. This season Fatma will perform Die Schöpfung at Tonhalle Düsseldorf and in Budapest; concerts in Lucerne, Vienna and Salzburg with Rolando Villazón; Strauss Lieder with the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra in Birmingham; and will give recitals in Perth, Leeds, Dresden, Bonn, Mallorca, and at Wigmore Hall. Fatma will make her debut at the Salzburg MozartWoche and will give gala concerts at The United Nations in Geneva, and in Muscat with Juan Diego Flórez. Tonight she is joined by Pembroke’s College Musician and Fellow of the Royal Academy of Music, Joseph Middleton.

“The flawless radiant Fatma Said is a real discovery” Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung
“Middleton...again demonstrates that he’s one of the most talented, intuitive collaborative pianists of his generation.” Classical Music Magazine.
