IMG Artists is delighted to welcome contralto Claudia Huckle to its roster for General Management. She will be represented by Isabella Pitman from the London office.

Praised as a ‘marvel in Mahler with perfect technique’ (BBC Music Magazine), Huckle was a Grand Final Winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions and the first female recipient of Operalia’s Birgit Nilsson Prize for singing Wagner. She has since appeared with opera companies and orchestras across Europe and the USA.

Current season highlights include Dritte Dame Die Zauberflöte at the Edinburgh International Festival; Rossini Stabat Mater with the Hallé and Sir Mark Elder; 1st Maid Elektra with the Bergen Philharmonic and Kirill Petrenko; her debut at the Bayerischer Staatsoper as The Innkeeper in Boris Godunov; a leading role for the London Handel Festival; 1st Norn Götterdämmerung with the LPO and Vladimir Jurowski; and Verdi Requiem at Cadogan Hall in London.

Huckle said, “I’m delighted to be joining IMG Artists and to be represented by Isabella Pitman in the London office. IMGA is an agency with a uniquely international reach and an enormously distinguished list of artists. I greatly look forward to working together!”

Pitman said, “I’m thrilled that Claudia will join the IMG Artists roster. She is an artist whom I have admired for a long time, and I think she will be a brilliant addition to our list of artists.”
