One of Englands most beloved sopranos, Lesley Garrett is a veteran performer in both opera and pop realms. In addition to her numerous recordings and stage appearances, Garrett has established herself as a popular British TV personality, even hosting her own BBC show for a brief period of time. Balancing her television work with occasional opera roles (THE MERRY WIDOW, THE SOUND OF MUSIC), Garrett is renowned for her populist musical views, which have been derided by some, but embraced by many.
