Kiandra has stepped in at 10 days notice to perform the role of Fiordiligi in Adele Thomas’ new production of Cosi fan tutte for Northern Ireland Opera to great acclaim. 

“The vocal performance of the night goes to Kiandra Howarth in the role of Fiordiligi. Seamless are her vocal leaps in ‘Come Scoglio’ and truly revealing of Fiordiligi’s internal conflict is her obbligato recitative ‘Ei parte’ and expressive rondo ‘Per pietà, ben mio’.”
