‘Oozing characterful expression’ with ‘ample tones, gorgeously rich in the middle’ (Opera Today), soprano Siân Dicker is in demand for her rich, full-bodied voice and dramatic flair. A regular on the competition platform, Siân won the Singers Prize in the 2020 Royal Over-Seas League Annual Music Competition as well as the Oxford Lieder Young Artist Platform. Siân is a City Music Foundation Artist, a 2021/22 Britten Pears Young Artist and was listed in BBC Music Magazine’s ‘Rising Stars’ feature in February 2023. She was delighted to be awarded the Simon Sandbach Award by Garsington Opera for her contribution to their 2023 season.

Siân is looking forward to covering the role of First Lady for English National Opera’s Magic Flute in 2024.
