Welcome to my homepage
I am inspired by music and text to make theatre. Theatre is storytelling, and my job is to engage the audience in the incredible imaginative world that the author or composer has created. I want them to hear the piece and let their minds be fired by the amazing narrative in front of them.
I enjoy collaboration at every level: with opera and theatre companies, symphony orchestras, training programmes, singers, actors, designers – and audiences.
I love to explore the connections between a variety of art forms, history and the lives of creative artists.
My great enthusiasm is the education of young people: as singers, actors, designers and directors. The passing on of knowledge and experience is a primary and vital responsibility. It is inspiring to be part of this process.
