UK refuses residency to rising US soprano

Under the headline’World-class soprano denied right to settle in the UK’ the Telegraph takes up the case of Erika Baikoff, 25, a Russian-born American artist.

Selected for the Metropolitan Opera Lindemann Young Artist Development Program, Baikoff has sung at ENO, where she was described as ‘world class’ and taken a degree at Guildhall School of Music.

She has an agent in London and wanted to remain here, but the Home Office has ruled that she spends too much time on tour to be granted residency.
