Mimi Doulton then gave an astonishing and virtuosic staged performance of Judith Weir's King Harald's Saga... A real tour de force. http://www.planethugill.com/2015/10/toi-toi-2015-hugill-mosely-ergo-phizmiz.html (2015)

Doulton’s spellbinding voice stays composed as she writhes in desperation, pleading Orpheus to turn and look at her. http://www.fringeopera.com/reviews/review-orpheus-and-eurydice-time-zone-theatre/ (2014)

Mimi Doulton showcased a wonderfully rich and surprisingly mature voice as Eurydice. http://www.thepublicreviews.com/orpheus-and-eurydice-rose-theatre-bankside-london/ (2014)

The vocal power of the petite Mimi Doulton, a choral scholar at King’s College London who is reading Music with French and Russian, seemed literally, not merely metaphorically, from another world. Like many young opera singers of today her acting is also skilled. The sense of privilege at seeing this up-and-coming star play Eurydice in this setting was almost overwhelming. https://www.londontheatre1.com/news/87813/review-of-orpheus-and-eurydice-at-the-rose-playhouse-bankside/ (2014)

British soprano Mimi Doulton is a postgraduate scholar at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, studying with Gary Coward. In 2015 she graduated with first-class honours in Music and Languages from King's College London, where she was a choral scholar.

Her career has recently taken a focus on contemporary music - she was involved in the development workshops for Philip Venables' Olivier Award-nominated Royal Opera commission 4.48 Psychosis and has collaborated with Mahogany Opera Group on their 'Snappy Operas' education project. Mimi's interpretation of Judith Weir's one-woman opera King Harald's Saga has been enjoyed by audiences in schools, nightclubs and art galleries alike, as well as at London's Wigmore Hall and St. John's Smith Square.

More traditional operatic work has included title roles in Gluck's Orfeo ed Eurydice and Mozart's Bastien und Bastienne, as well as chorus and cover work for Hampstead Garden Opera (Le nozze di Figaro) and Opera Lyrica (La Traviata).

On the concert stage she has sung a wide range of sacred and recital repertoire - exploring composers from Gabrieli and Handel to Stravinsky and Webern. Work with the Philharmonia Chorus has taken her across the UK and Europe, including to renowned venues such as the Royal Albert Hall, the Royal Festival Hall and the Barbican Concert Hall. Mimi is a member of the Blossom Street Singers and also often sings in the professional choir at St. Brides Fleet Street.

Recital repertoire for 2017 includes Fauré’s La bonne chanson with string quintet, Copland’s 12 poems of Emily Dickinson and the European premiere of Jules Pegrams' Valentines. Mimi is also looking forward to a return to Wigmore Hall in May 2017 to premiere collaborative work by Guildhall School composers and librettists.

Mimi is grateful to the Guildhall School Trust and private donors for their generous support of her studies. If you are interested in supporting her continued studies at the Guildhall School in 2017/18 please get in touch.
