Micaela in Carmen

Rehearsals are underway for my Micaela debut! For the last year I’ve been producing a new production of Carmen to take place at one of the former London 2012 Olympics stadiums, the Copper Box Arena. A collaboration between English Pocket Opera Company and United Learning to bring together an orchestra, 4 principal singers and a chorus of 1500 school children from around the UK, all supported by the Royal Opera House.

Juliet in Bosnia

We’ve returned from Bosnia with our production of Romeo and Juliet, and the trip was utterly inspiring. The children worked so hard at their parts and sang with such beauty. Furthermore, to see the two sides of the river in Mostar come together to represent the Capulets and the Montagues was very moving indeed. What a beautiful country, with such generous hosts. Here is a preview of some of our rehearsals there, as well as a cheeky shot of Mostar’s famous monument.
