Najade - Ariadne auf Naxos
I was recommended as a cover for the role of Najade with the innovative and very welcoming, Uncovered Opera - I was then really pleased to have the opportunity to perform! Having learnt the role pretty speedily, this was a really exciting challenge and I am thrilled to be performing the piece again in September (26th 7pm) at the St Mary's Festival, Islington.
Pamina - The Magic Flute
St. Alban's Chamber Opera
The Abbey Theatre
15th - 18th March
I really enjoyed getting to grips with this complex and challenging character, with the support of the lovely team at St. Alban's Chamber Opera and a group of very talented and welcoming cast members.
St Alban's Chamber Opera: Tea Concert
4th December, 2:30pm
My dear friend and collaborative pianist, Stella Marie Lorenz, had a lovely time researching and refining a festive programme, giving a sense of the excitement and anticipation of the Advent season. Including pieces by Cheminade, Handel, Marx and Dove, we included a real variety of works and discovered some new favourites in the process. We went on to perform this programme at several Christmas Soirees!
Lucia - Lucia Di Lamermoor
26th November, 7:30pm
This has always been one of my favourite pieces to watch, but having only discovered my connection with singing this repertoire relatively recently, the idea of taking on Lucia at this stage was a real challenge. The support of the Opera Integra team, including Peter Crockford and George Ireland, made it a fantastic first experience of this very difficult role!
Lucy (cover) - The Telephone
Opera on the Move
The Playground Theatre
21st - 22nd October
I thoroughly enjoyed watching this production come together, a double bill of Menotti's The Telephone and Poulenc's La Voix Humaine. I was thrilled to prepare this lovely role and managed to explore it in some depth, despite the short time frame, working with the fabulous team at Opera on the Move.
Operas by American Women
Angela Burgess Recital Hall
Royal Academy of Music
I have hugely enjoyed discovering a wealth of little-known and beautiful works by American women composers, encouraged by the study of singer and director, Anne Sutton.
I felt privileged to perform the aria 'Sola, abbandonata' from Mary Carr Moore's David Rizzio.
