Anne-Marie Owens is among the mezzo-sopranos most in demand in recent years in the British operatic scene. She has sung at opera houses in England, Europe, and America, covering a wide range of mezzo and alto roles. In England, she is primarily associated with the English National Opera. Representative roles in her repertory are: Mary in The Flying Dutchman; all three mezzo parts (La Frugola, The Princess, and Zita) in Puccini's Il Trittico; Dame Quickly in Falstaff; Arnalta in The Coronation of Poppea; and Laura in La Gioconda. She plays the two most witch-like characters in Verdi and Wagner operas, Azucena (Il Trovatore) and Kundry (Parsifal). Owens participated in the recording of Judith Wier's opera Blond Ekbert.
