Susan Bullock’s unique position as one of the world’s most sought-after British dramatic sopranos was recognised by the award of a CBE (Commander of the Most Excellent Order of the British Empire) in June 2014.

One of her most distinctive roles, Wagner’s Brünnhilde has garnered outstanding praise leading Susan to become the first ever soprano to sing four consecutive cycles of Der Ring des Nibelungen at the Royal Opera House under Sir Antonio Pappano. Appearances as Richard Strauss’ Elektra have brought her equal international acclaim and collaborations with leading conductors including Fabio Luisi, Semyon Bychkov, Seiji Ozawa, Sir Mark Elder and Edo de Waart. 

Susan continues to expand into new repertoire including Kostelnička (Jenůfa) for Grange Park Opera, Minnie (La fanciulla del West) for English National Opera, Mother and The Witch (Hänsel und Gretel) for Opera North, Mrs Lovett (Sweeney Todd) for Houston Grand Opera, Mother in Mark-Anthony Turnage’s Greek at the Edinburgh International Festival and with Scottish Opera and, further ahead, adds Klytaemnestra (Elektra) Canadian Opera.
