Cinderella in waiting

Here is some Publicity work I did for Opera Up Close, the Pub Opera which recently has enthralled London audiences with their witty rendition of Puccini's La Boheme. This is Cinderella, eagerly waiting for a bus ...

Cinderella runs at the King's Head Theatre, London's little opera house, until January 18th.

Our Voice

'To sing is the most human of the art form delivery, more than perhaps an instrument which has to be tuned mechanically: You are the tuner, you are the vessel, everything depends on how you feel as a person. It is for you to hear how beautiful your instrument is. From you to you with much much love. That way you can send it out to the public because they make the careers. Once they accept you, and your freedom to be, and your love of singing, they never leave you, there is no love like that.'

Black Swan

Black Swan opened in the US on 3rd December. Featuring Natalie Portman, it is set within the artistic world of the New York City Ballet. It's sexy, it's spooky. I've always had a crush on Portman ;)
