I have recently started rehearsals for Pagliaccio at Opera Holland Park where I will be singing Nedda, a role that I have wanted to do for a long time. We are having a great time in the rehearsal room so far and it will be very exciting how it all will turn out. Opening night is on June 4. You can find more information here.
Other news is that English National Opera has announced their 2013/2014 season in which I am looking forward to two very exciting engagements: Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus in a production directed by Christopher Alden and the role of Antigone in Thebans – a new commission by the British composer Julian Anderson. For more information about ENO’s season, watch the trailer here.
The biggest news however are on a more personal level as I have recently become a mother to a gorgeous little boy! His father and I are enjoying a very precious time as first time parents.
