Maria Callas – BBC Radio 4

I was so honoured to be asked by BBC Radio 4 to present a programme on the great soprano, Maria Callas to commemorate the centenary of her birth, on 2nd December 1923. And the programme will be broadcast on BBC Radio on that exact day, 2nd December 2023 at 20.00. I had a wonderful time researching and recording it with the eminent psychiatrist and Callas devotee, Dr John Crichton. Do tune in and I hope that you enjoy. BBC Radio 4 – Archive on 4, La Divina


English National Opera

This is quite a dream for me to be doing! 25 years after I sang the role of Rosina in Jonathan Miller’s production of Rossini’s ‘The Barber of Seville’ I am back, but this time in the wonderful role of Berta, the Maid. I can’t believe that I shall be stepping on my beloved Coliseum stage once more and in front of the glorious ENO audience. The opera, and this production, is an absolute hoot so I hope that many of you will be able to come and see it. Opening night is Monday, 12th February then there are six more shows before it closes on Thursday, 29th February. Details here: The Barber of Seville | Buy Opera Tickets for 2023/24 | ENO
