The next stop on my musical adventure has been Buckinghamshire. I was invited to rehearse in this beautiful county by Arcadian Opera in order to prepare the role of Pamina for their production of The Magic Flute (Die Zauberflöte) by Mozart. This will be my role debut and I am thrilled to get the opportunity to explore this character’s quirks and traits and to portray her strength and frailty. I have had the pleasure of working with this company before in 2019 for their production of Romeo and Juliet and it is a delight to reunite with their fantastic creative team, their chorus, to reignite relatiionships with the re-visiting soloists, whilst meeting fantastic new colleagues.
