Her most recent performances have included playing the role of the eponymous heroine in a world stage production of Judith Weir’s Armida, singing in the chorus of Hayden’s creation at the 2019 Proms at the Royal Albert Hall, and performing as the mezzo soloist in John Casken’s Memorial at the University Chorus’ December concert in 2018 which was later recorded.
Other performances include the interpretation of the roles of Dorabella (from Mozart’s Don Giovanni) and Clorinda (from Monteverdi’s Il combattimiento di Tancredi e Clorinda) as part of the University of Manchester’s production, ‘A Fight at the Opera’, earlier in 2018, and was cast as a cigarette girl in Opera Shack’s production of Carmen later that year.
