Apologies for the recent silence! After taking a break from singing for the final months of 2016, I enjoyed a return to singing with Pocket Opera, playing Pamina in their wonderful production of the Magic Flute back in April (click HERE for the review!)
I have also been busy updating my website, and hope to update it further with more exciting events for 2017. Until then, here's a backstage photo with one of my fellow Magic Flute cast members...
It's been a busy summer! Most of it has been spent preparing a performance of Gilbert & Sullivan's "The Mikado" for the International G&S Festival in Harrogate, which took place on 15th August in the spectacular Royal Hall in Harrogate. The performance was well received and I was nominated for "Best Supporting Actress" in my role of Pitti-Sing.
Whilst not rehearsing "Three Little Maids" I've been lucky enough to perform in some of the excellent lunchtime recital series in Poole & Bournemouth. Here is a clip from my St Peter's, Parkstone July recital.
Dvorak's "Song to the Moon" from the opera Rusalka sung in English and accompanied by Christine Taylor. Enjoy!
I've finally uploaded some clips from the Bournemouth G&S production of Ruddigore, in which I played Mad Margaret in October last year. The Act 1 recit, aria & dialogue (with Rose Maybud, played by Ruth Mills) is available on my YouTube channel (click HERE,) on my "LISTEN" page (click HERE) or if you're happy where you are then you can watch it at the end of this post!
If you enjoyed then please stay tuned as I'll be posting some scenes from Act 2 over the next few days!
There are also some new upcoming events for 2016 in the form of lunchtime recitals: more details can be found on my "EVENTS" page (click HERE) and watch this space as there will be more dates added in the coming months.
Another blog post in less than a week?! What is happening?! I have been a busy recitalist recently, but found the time to write up a blog post about my upcoming show "Ruddigore" at the Lighthouse Theatre in Poole. It's a funny show with great music and suitable for all the family!
