Mezzo Soprano, Soprano

Lotte Betts-Dean

Lotte Betts-Dean is an Australian mezzo soprano based in the UK with a wide ranging repertoire and a passion for curation, programming and collaborative project development. Praised by The Guardian for her “irrepressible sense of drama and unmissable, urgent musicality”, Lotte is equally at home in chamber music, art song, contemporary repertoire of all kinds, early music, opera and narration. Lotte is an Associate of the Royal Academy of Music, an Ambassador for Donne UK — an organization supporting women in music — and recently won Young Artist of the Year at the 2024 Royal Philharmonic Society Awards. Lotte is a regular at major festivals across the UK, Australia and Europe, and operatic credits in baroque, 20th century and contemporary opera include Grand Théâtre de Genève, Bayerische Staatsoper and State Opera of South Australia. She studied at Melbourne Conservatorium of Music, ANAM and the Royal Academy of Music. Recent albums have been released on Delphian Records, Another Timbre, NAXOS and Divine Art Métier. This is her third visit to AFCM since 2019 and she is thrilled to be back!
