Madeleine Bradbury Rance is an operatic soprano with a diverse musical background, who has won particular acclaim for her portrayals of strong women in a wide range of operatic settings. Having studied cello and voice at The Purcell School and Junior Royal Academy of Music, Madeleine read English at Cambridge, where she sang with the choir of Clare College on several professional recordings and two international tours. Madeleine holds a Distinction in Opera from Birkbeck, and is currently an Eva Malpass Scholar on the Masters programme at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, studying with Alison Wells and working with coaches Robert Bottriell and Kelvin Lim. She receives additional coaching from David Gowland at the Royal Opera House.

Operatic roles include Abigaille in Nabucco (Brent Opera), Mother in Amahl and the Night Visitors (Trinity Laban Opera), the title role in Suor Angelica (Opera in the Meantime), Aunt Norris in Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park and Lady Billows in Albert Herring (both Hampstead Garden Opera).

Madeleine is a semi-finalist in the International Elizabeth Connell prize 2018, and was a finalist in the Peter Hulsen Award for Orchestral song 2017, performing Wagner, Strauss and Saariaho with the Southbank Sinfonia. In addition she was a finalist in the Roy Pleasance Award for Voice and Orchestra 2017, and Runner-up for the Trinity Laban Soloists Competition, where she performed Strauss’s Four Last Songs. Alongside her performing career, Madeleine is passionate about outreach and education work, and has devised, led and participated in projects in schools, prisons, nurseries and art galleries. She is a visiting singing teacher at Channing School in Highgate.

London-based pianist Panaretos Kyriatzidis is increasingly sought after as a collaborative performer. Winner of the Emmy Destinn Awards Accompanist’s prize, Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform and the Gerald Moore Award, Panaretos has also reached the finals of numerous national and international competitions.

After finishing his postgraduate studies with Martino Tirimo and Eugene Asti at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance, Panaretos was appointed Junior Fellow in Accompaniment there for two years. During his studies he was awarded various prizes, mostly in accompaniment and chamber music, and performed Stravinsky’s concerto for piano and wind instruments with the Trinity Laban Wind Orchestra.

Panaretos has worked with many leading musicians in masterclasses: Thomas Quasthoff, Menahem Pressler, Elly Ameling, Roger Vignoles, Pascal Rogé, Graham Johnson and the great George Hadjinikos, to name a few. He enjoys a fruitful collaboration with King’s Head Theatre, where he has been the Musical Director for their Puccini trilogy, with their production of Tosca winning the Off West End Award 2018 for best opera production and La Bohème receiving a nomination at this year’s Olivier Awards.

A native of the Greek island of Thassos, Panaretos holds a BA in Law from the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and takes particular interest in culinary creations.
