Wagner roles are increasingly prominent in her diary with appearances as Sieglinde Die Walküre for the Badisches Staatstheater Karlsruhe; Brünnhilde Die Walküre with Jaap van Zweden and the Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra; Brünnhilde Siegfried for Oper Leipzig and she most recently added Brünnhilde in Götterdämmerung at the Stadttheater Klagenfurt to complete all three appearances of Brünnhilde in Wagner’s Ring Cycle.

Britten also features highly in her repertoire, having sung Miss Jessel in The Turn of the Screw for Garsington Opera and Mrs Coyle in Owen Wingrave for Opéra national de Lorraine.

Current and recent highlights include returning to Klagenfurt to sing Isolde in Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde; a return to Opéra Orchestre national Montpellier for Ariadne Ariadne auf Naxos and adding another new role to her repertoire, Santuzza in Cavalleria Rusticana at Blackheath Concert Halls. She has recently sung Leonore Fidelio for Garsington Opera in concert, which was recorded for BBC Radio 3; Alice Ford, in a filmed new production of Falstaff, with Opéra Orchestre national Montpellier and another comic role, Berta Il barbiere di Siviglia, at Opéra national de Paris.

A committed concert singer, Katherine appears regularly with leading symphony orchestras in the UK and abroad making her debut with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and Sir Simon Rattle singing Helmwige Die Walküre, and Strauss Vier letzte Lieder with the Queensland Symphony Orchestra, Orquesta Sinfónica de Castilla y León and the Ulster Orchestra, where she also recorded Wagner Wesendonck Lieder.

Most recently she has sung Mahler Rückert-Lieder with the Ulster Orchestra; excerpts from Wagner Götterdämmerung with the BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra conducted by Ryan Wigglesworth, and Schubert Winterreise at the Oxford Lieder and Leeds Lieder festivals with Kathryn Stott.

A busy recording schedule and a growing discography includes repertoire such as Vaughan Williams A Sea Symphony, Die Walküre and Götterdämmerung with Mark Elder and the Hallé; Mendelssohn Songs and Duets with Eugene Asti on Hyperion; Britten Songs with Malcolm Martineau for Onyx Classics; Schumann The Complete Songs with Graham Johnson on Hyperion;  Mussorgsky Songs and Romances with Sergey Rybin for Stone Records and Lieder for the Turn of a Century – a recital disc of Strauss, Berg and Schoenberg with Malcolm Martineau for Champs Hill Records.
