Recital at the Almeida with Early Opera Company

Throughout history, the story of Medea has fascinated composers, never more so than in France in the 17th and 18th centuries. I’m delighted to be joining the acclaimed Olivier Award-nominated Early Opera Company and Christian Curnyn for Bernier’s cantata Médée and excerpts from Charpentier’s magnificent opera of the same name at the Almeida Theatre on 4th October.

World premiere recording of J. C. Pepusch’s Venus and Adonis (1715) this June for the wonderful Ramée label.

Thrilled to be singing the role of Venus in the world premiere recording of J. C. Pepusch’s Venus and Adonis (1715) with The Harmonious Society of Tickle-Fiddle Gentlemen and Pippa Hyde (Adonis) and Richard Edgar-Wilson (Mars) this June for the Ramée label. This is a two-act English masque in the Italian style that would be the model for Handel’s Acis and Galatea. The work culminates in a dramatic fury scene for Venus. The earliest English opera with a complete set of original performing parts, it was composed as showpiece for two of the biggest stars of the London stage in the early eighteenth century, Margherita de l’Epine and Jane Barbier..
