Jane Eaglen is a two-time winner of the Seattle Opera Artist of the Year award—in 1994 for Bellini’s Norma (her U.S. opera debut) and in 1999 for Wagner’s Isolde. Her other roles with the company have included the title role in Puccini’s Turandot and Leonore in Beethoven’s Fidelio, and, most recnetly, Senta in Wagner’s Fliegende Holländer. Wagner’s Brünnhilde is a signature role for Eaglen, who has sung the Valkyrie at Seattle Opera (2000, 2001, and 2005), the Metropolitan Opera, Teatro alla Scala, Lyric Opera of Chicago, San Francisco Opera, Vienna State Opera, and Den Norske Opera in Oslo. Among her many other roles are Isolde in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde (Seattle, New York, Barcelona, Chicago, Puerto Rico), Norma (with Seattle, the Met, Paris Opéra-Bastille, and the Ravenna Festival), and Donna Anna in Mozart’s Don Giovanni (New York, Vienna, Los Angeles, and Bologna). Eaglen’s extensive discography includes a Grammy award-winning recording of Wanger’s Tannhäuser. Eaglen is the recipient of an honorary Doctor of Music degree from McGill University and University College Lincoln, UK, and has served as principal vocal instructor for Seattle Opera’s Young Artists Program.
