    Very nice autumn tour you are engaged in. Your lunchtime recital is on my birthday, so it will be fantastic. I like the short video of behind the scenes.

      Is your birthday 26th Oct or 12th Nov? If is the 12th it’s the day after mine, anyhow good to learn you’re a fellow Scorpion 🦂😊, I hope you have a super birthday this year and that you’re planning something different to do.
      All my best wishes

        I’m October 26th. But we are close. We Scorpios are the coolest. I looked up famous people born on November 11th. Leonardo DiCaprio is the only one I recognized. I expect you will make the list of famous people born on 11/11 in the near future.

      I’m very happy to have these opportunities this year, my first year freelancing which is quite daunting. I need an extra day in the week at the moment but I’ve been working hard all weekend memorising words to stay on top of everything.
      Thanks for keeping in touch John.
      All my best wishes

      I’ve had a super first week of music rehearsals, I’ve spent most of this weekend memorising words to try to get off copy so that I can concentrate on the movement and acting along with the singing next week.
      All my best wishes

    You truly are on you way!
    Pandora… Juliette…
    Well, at one point you were concerned about summer’s work.
    Soon, you will be concerned about… When can I get some time off?
    You are amazing, because you are you, and your voice is out of this world. Sincere regards – Resa

      Thanks for your confidence in me Resa, I can’t get complacent and you’re quite right about the summer… I’ve started to get concerned about not having enough time to look for work for next year already 😬😊.
      I hope you are keeping well and are busy as usual 💕.
      My very best wishes
      Charlotte

        You will never be complacent! You care too, much and work very hard.
        Years down the road, when you are an international star, you will become very selective about the roles you play.
        As it should be.
        Very best to you, Charlotte

    Good to see you busy. The little behind the scenes clip was great – if the film is ever released any wider, let us know, I’ll to to find it.

    • 

      I hope the film is released wider I’ll be sure to blog about it if it is. We didn’t get time for many takes it was a very busy couple of days but a very exciting process. The filming crew were brilliant and getting my makeup done by a professional was fun.
      All my best wishes Trent,
      Charlotte

      Fingers crossed one day I will get to perform again in the U.S.A. But until then I am happy to keep busy.

    Gm have a nice day

  9. 

    Oh, Charlotte! Good luck with Juliette! Je Veux Vivre is my favourite song above all songs; is there any chance you may have a snippet video recorded for us who can’t make it to the performance? I’m so excited for you; you just keep moving on to brighter and higher things all the time!

    Best regards,

    Cate

      I popped over to your blog to see if you’d started to update it again and I loved reading the author profiles you’d all made. I have recorded a little bit of me singing Je Veux Vivre on the rehearsal stage at the Llangollen concert earlier this year but I don’t have permission to share it on line so when we next meet I’ll show you then.

      I’m back in London in November so we’ll have to see if our paths cross again. I’m singing Je Veux Vivre in Romeo and Juliet this month, in English. I learned the Gounod words before rehearsals began ‘In my fairy dream’ but the Director wanted word changes so I’ve relearned the piece last week. I’m in week two of three week rehearsals but today I’m not required until 1800 so I’ve practised this morning, then more word and music memorising this afternoon because the evening practice session, I’m taking a catch up blog break 😊.

      All my best wishes
      Charlotte

    How exciting is all this, Charlotte? You really must be eager to sing for your grandparents too!! I am so very happy for you!

      The filming was just so fabulous to be a part of, it was very different than I expected it to be and we recorded the music first with orchestra. I can’t wait to see what it all looks like after editing I just hope I did ok because it was a big investment, I gave it my all.

      It will be the first time I’ve performed in Stoke (the Potteries near where my Mum grew up) I’m hoping my Nan is rallying up her posse to come and watch, hehe. I’m smiling that you’re happy.

      All my best wishes
      Charlotte

      Both events are in October, check you’ve put them on your calendar it’s a long way to go to Oxford on the wrong date 😊. Not long now to the Juliet performance are you coming on Saturday 19th or Sunday 20th October? See you then xx

      All my best,
      Charlotte x

  15. 

    You are a busy woman! I’ll try and get to Warrington but I’m going to Snowdonia for my birthday so may not have time. Good luck with all your projects. xx

      Charlotte Hoather October 8, 2019 at 3:52 pm

      I’d much rather be busy than worrying about where the next job is coming from, its hard to audition when you’re working away from London!

      It would be lovely to see you in Warrington if you do make it please stay to speak to us we’d love to meet you but I do hope you have a fabulous birthday in Snowdonia anyway are you a Scorpion birth sign too? Thank you, Christine.

      All my best wishes
      Charlotte

    It sounds as though you have a very busy autumn ahead! Do you have any plans to perform in London in the near future?

    • 
      Charlotte Hoather October 8, 2019 at 3:53 pm

      I do, I enjoyed reading your shared post on how to cheaply improve your life. I do meditate often on journeys so I get lots of strange looks, but I do so much commuting and it can take over if you don’t zone out, I have an app on my phone to help. I rarely watch TV although I do enjoy an occasional box set so that I can stop and start when my crazy timetable allows. I worked with lots of people I admire this year but I agree that #4 can affect your mood, I used my morning off to catch up with people I’m missing. Now to get food right on tour!!!

      I can’t wait to get back to London at the end of this month and sleep in my own bed, catch up with friends and just settle down for a few weeks before I’m back up in the North for a Christmas production which I’m excited to be in.

      All my best wishes
      Charlotte

    Warmest wishes for safe and successful travels this autumn – wonderful opportunities!!

      Thank you Sheila, I’ve done so much driving this year after living in London for a few years and relying on public transport it took me a while to readjust I’m just hoping my trusty Citroen named Va Va Voom holds up for me 😊.

      All my best wishes,

    George Todica always looks studious. (..his tie kinda matches your dress). Holy cow, Charlotte, your Voice is very Soprano. Maybe a dumb question, but.. Did it take long for you to learn how to control your Voice? Finally, as you continue to play a myriad of Roles (Characters) do you have a favorite Role you’ve played up to this point? Are there any other Roles still on your List that you’d love to Play? I imagine, as you uncover more Stories in your Career, you’ll add new Roles to this same List, as well. Blessings.

    • 

      Great questions Eric. I’ll tell George he’ll love that he looks studious without his glasses on. We had some promotional shots done for our recital duo and we’ve booked about three concerts together.

      I’m still learning to control my voice, I’m really missing seeing my lovely professor Rosa and coaches Andrew and Simon in London on a regular basis but I did catch up with a couple of my singing teachers and coaches in Scotland and I discovered a super new coach in Manchester who helped me to prepare for Juliet.

      My favourite role so far ….I’ve enjoyed them all for different reasons Uccellina and Jessie Junior were new works specifically written for babies and children they were just so enjoyable, the interaction with children was brilliant it was fascinating to see their reaction to the spectacle. Zerlina and Frasquita it was nice to sing in Italian and French in feminine roles and Gretel was a fun role singing in German. Hero and Maria Bertram are great characters in operas delving into the English classical author’s world Shakespeare and Jane Austin, I’ve read and studied more classics this year than I did in school. Eve and Pandora both modern, contemporary operas including the first women created on earth, it was nice to create the roles from scratch.

      There are so many roles I’d like to sing I’m not limiting myself though and at this stage I want to just work as much as I can.

      Blessings to you too, all my best wishes
      Charlotte
