"The timbre is one of polished gold from the bottom to the top of the voice"   Voix des Arts

"Miriam Allan’s stylish Hypsipyle steals the show several times"   Gramophone

Gramophone describes Miriam Allan’s singing as “enchanting” and “impressive” with audiences around the world engaged by her honesty and “depictions of sublime hope” in places of darkness and sorrow.  She has given performances from Edinburgh to Auckland and many places in between – especially her native Australia and in Europe.  She has been fortunate to work with many of the finest conductors, directors and accompanists including Sir John Eliot Gardiner, William Christie, Laurence Cummings, Lars Ulrik Mortensen, Nicholas Collon and Roy Goodman.  Her engagements with the Monteverdi Choir, Les Violons du Roy, Sydney Philharmonia Choirs, Concerto Copenhagen, Auckland Philharmonia, Gewandhaus Kammerchor, Israel Camerata and Melbourne Symphony Orchestra have seen her in concerts of Mozart, Monteverdi, Rameau, Bach, Handel and Haydn to mention but a few.  She has graced the opera stage in productions for the Opéra Comique, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Pinchgut Opera and for Les Arts Florissants featuring Purcell, Cavalli, Handel, Vivaldi and Rameau.  Equally at home in contemporary repertoire, Miriam has enjoyed working with Sinfonia Australis and more recently with the outstanding Aurora Orchestra in London. A long term project of Monteverdi with Les Arts Florissants under Paul Agnew’s direction continues from performances of each madrigal he wrote through to concerts of the masterpieces from those books. In the coming months, Miriam will make her debut with the Academy of Ancient Music in a concert performance of Monteverdi’s L’incoronazione di Poppea in Venice and with the Dunedin Consort for concerts of Bach and Handel.
