We are pleased to update news from Soprano Katherine McIndoe at Guildhall, London. Katherine reports- In the Vocal Masters programme, alongside weekly lessons (with my wonderful teacher Yvonne Kenny), coaching, stagecraft, movement, and language classes, the course is structured around extra projects which you are selected for at the start of the term. Coming up next term, I am involved in another Scenes production ( performing Britten and Jonathan Dove), and also have chance to perform one of my dream roles for the first time: I have just been cast as the Governess in Britten’s The Turn of the Screw with King’s Opera ( King’s College), which we will perform in April. Life at Guildhall is extremely intense, often involving very long days of back – to – back classes, rehearsals, and coaching, and requiring music to be learnt very quickly and efficiently. However, I feel that I am really thriving in this environment: even though I am doing lots of different projects all at once. (Source: NZ Opera News 2018).
It’s always a pleasure to hear from our alumnus but the recent news from Chris Berentson was extra special! Chris has been cast in the title role in Don Giovanni in the Lyric Opera Studio
