Oct 2014: This month I am in rehearsals for a modern opera called Solaris by Detlev Glanert for Cologne Opera, in which I play the lead female role of Harey. The opera which is set in space, is proving fun to rehearse with director Patrick Kinmonth, conductor Lothar Zagrosek alongside wonderful colleagues Nikolay Borchev, Martin Koch, Bjarni Thor Kristinsson, Quilin Zhang, Dalia Schaechter and Hanna Herfurtner.
Sept 2014: I very much enjoyed playing the role of Pamina for Northern Ireland Opera’s hit production of The Magic Flute, directed by Oliver Mears, conducted by Nicholas Chalmers.
Sept/Oct 2014: I had a great time playing the role of Despina in Cosi fan tutte for Cologne Opera conducted by Julia Jones. It was lovely to revisit the role of Despina after having played this role in November 2010 as a student at the Royal Academy of Music.
