Hello...

...and thank you for looking at my site...

Well, it has been a rocket of a year! My huge thanks to all of the wonderful friends who helped me to get to Cardiff where I have just successfully completed my Master of Arts at the Wales International Academy of Voice! The year shot by so quickly and I am now very happy to announce that I will be taking over the title role in Opera Brava’s production of Tosca! (Tickets available here).

Stubbings Opera Festival provides a wonderful opportunity to see opera in a stunning environment; guests are invited to enjoy a picnic in the gardens (bring your own or hampers can be ordered apparently!) before moving to a covered outdoor theatre space to be thrilled by Puccini’s gorgeous music and gripping drama.

This is my favourite opera, packed with passion and tension. Tosca is very much in love with Cavaradossi but her insecurities allow her to be manipulated by the evil Police Captain, Scarpia. An escaped resistance member is being hunted down and Scarpia realises that Cavaradossi has assisted him. Scarpia fuels Tosca’s jealousy and encourages her to accidentally lead his men to their hiding place. Aroused by Tosca’s passion, Scarpia decides that he must possess her and so he trades the life of her lover for a taste of her lips. Desperate to escape this shame, Tosca takes the opportunity to save herself and Scarpia feels her wrath. Believing that they can now escape together, Tosca informs Cavaradossi of the plan and awaits the ‘sham execution’ that has been arranged....

I do hope you can join us and be wrapped in this wonderful world of music!

Thank you again for your continued support, I am eternally grateful,

P.S. I also have a CD available to purchase here.
