had a wonderful time appearing as part of the dorset international festival and dorset opera .
well we spent a great deal of time and effort preparing the contrating and fascinating operas tosca and otelload a chance to cover the roles of both tosca and desdemona and sing in the chorus of both productions for every performance.
it was a wonderful opportunity to work with Phillip Thomas and Dame Josephine Bairstow on the opera Tosca .
we had a wonderful cast of principle singers to include Lee Bisset ,Adriano Graziano ,Phillip Rhodes.
I had a wonderful time working along side them all ,always so welcoming and helpful .
Then we prepared the complex opera otello .i was understudying desdemona and we were double cast
Stephaine Corley was parterned with Ian Storey and Catherine Bouchier was teamed up with Howard Haskin and Luca Grassi.
Otello was conducted by Robin Stapleton .
the chorus was led by Nicholas Mansfieild
All of this was overseen by Roderick Kennedy and I look forward to working with Dorset opera in the future
