Norma Burrowes

Biography

Born: April 24, 1944; Bangor, County Down, Ireland  
Norma Burrowes is best known for her performance of Baroque music, particularly Handel, but has also excelled in Mozart and light opera, including those of Gilbert and Sullivan and Viennese operettas. She studied music at the Royal Academy in London, singing demanding lead roles while still a student. Her professional debut was in 1970 with the Glyndebourne Touring Company as Zerlina in Mozart's Don Giovanni, followed later that year by her Read more Covent Garden debut in the virtuoso part of the Fiakermilli in Richard Strauss' Arabella. The next year brought her Salzburg debut as Blonde in Mozart's The Abduction From the Seraglio. She sang several roles at Glyndebourne between 1970 and 1981, in addition to making recordings, appearing in television productions of operas and operettas, and giving recitals. In 1979, she repeated the role for her Metropolitan Opera debut. She is married to former tenor and voice teacher Emile Belcourt. She retired from performing in 1982. Read less
