Soprano

About

The

Artist

British-American soprano Claire Galloway’s theatricality covers the gamut of “palpable pain” and “splendid, funny moments” (B.I.T.R.). In 2018 Ms. Galloway was a semifinalist in the Mildred Miller Competition and a finalist in the Saltworks Opera Competition. She joined Saltworks to sing Blanche in Poulenc’s Dialogues of the Carmelites this Summer. She also portrayed Vitellia (La Clemenza di Tito) in Oslo and reprised her role in Dialogues under the direction of Fabrizio Melano in the Savannah Voice Festival. Having performed well-known roles such as Dinah (Trouble in Tahiti), Contessa (Le nozze di Figaro), and Donna Elvira (Don Giovanni), she has also premiered roles in Jonathan Dove’s Mansfield Park and Frances Pollock’s Stinney, featured in the 2019 Prototype Festival.

 

In past seasons, Ms. Galloway has performed with Baltimore Concert Opera, the Savannah Voice Festival, Bel Cantanti Opera, and Stillpointe Theatre.

Last season she joined Baltimore Musicales to present a recital based on the life of Rosa Ponselle at the elegant George Peabody Library. Ms. Galloway is curator of the related Ponselle exhibit at the Peabody Institute, where she currently teaches.

 

An avid recitalist, she also recently sang with baritone Rob McGinness and presented two concerts with pianist John Henderson showcasing Scandinavian and contemporary American compositions. Ms. Galloway’s innovative recital programing has resulted in the best attended concert event at the Baltimore War Memorial Arts Initiative in past seasons.

 

A frequent soloist with Concert Artists of Baltimore, Ms. Galloway has also performed concert and oratorio works with Bach in Baltimore, the American Symphony Orchestra, and the Peabody Concert Orchestra.

DC Theatre Scene

Susan Galbraith

Claire Galloway Weber as Dinah, the wife, delivered some beautiful arias. I was deeply moved by the dream she relates to her psychiatrist on the couch, in this production inventively draped as a chanteuse over the top of the piano. 'I was standing in the garden' was filled with the inner longing of this woman. I also liked the risks she took in the wild 'Trouble in Tahiti'...She rips into the song with abandon, moving from comic dismissal of movie musicals as they were written to getting caught up in the plot of one then tearing with fury into the exotic singing-dancing island girls 'ahaahhaahha' complete with phony hula dancing.

Baltimore Independent Theatre Review

Dinah, played by Claire Galloway Weber, is also an outstanding songbird soprano who holds her own against Tomaszewski. Her pain is palpable, and her courage to try and find help seems a thin veiled reflection on deflection. She has her own splendid funny moment performing 'Island Magic,' while flouncing between a disgusted movie patron and a back up dancer for the Polynesian Dance Troupe.

Mike Zellhofer

Galloway Weber's clear, dulcet voice draws you into her struggle between having the perfect looking suburban home and what appears to be an alluring marriage, and the desire for a relationship with the man she loves. She conveys this perfectly in her scene with her psychiatrist and as she recounts her viewing of the South Sea romance Trouble in Tahiti.
