Are you seeking a lower-voiced opera singer/classical singer for your production or event, in France or beyond? I am a contralto singer from New Zealand, now based in Paris. Back in my home country of New Zealand, I completed a Master of Music in Classical Singing from the University of Auckland and a Post-Graduate Certificate in Theatre Studies from the University of Waikato. I have experience singing opera, oratorio, art song, musical theatre/jazz/pop, contemporary classical, folk and traditional songs, songs for special events (such as Christmas parties) and more!
I have a particular passion for art song (mélodie). As a poet myself, I greatly enjoy singing some of the great poetic works, set to music by masterful composers such as Schubert, Debussy, and Britten. These songs can be selected to suit a particular topic or occasion, or presented in the context of a recital. Generally, these works are performed with piano accompaniment. However, I am have also performed plenty of art song/vocal chamber music repertoire with other instruments and groupings.
Prior to 2022, I was singing as a mezzo-soprano; my operatic repertoire history reflects this. My aria and role lists are currently being refreshed to suit my new Fach (voice type). Please contact me directly for more information while my materials are being updated. As a contralto, oratorio repertoire is a specialty; fortunately as a mezzo-soprano, I already sang many of the great contralto operatic roles, such as Handel’s Messiah, Vivaldi’s Gloria, and plenty of Bach. I have also performed and premiered more recent works, including by living composers.
