No rehearsals today but a chance to get to know our cast...Emily Edmonds is Asteria in Bajazet. Emily is from Sydney but is based in London and just won a place in the prestigious Jette Parker Young Artists Programme at the Royal Opera House in London, commencing this September. Pinchgut's Bajazet will be the only opportunity to see her perform in Australia for at least two years due to the demanding schedule of the Programme. Asteria is Bajazet's daughter and a key character in the narrative of the opera. Four of our singers have flown over from London to be in Bajazet, Christopher Lowrey - countertenor , Russell Harcourt and Helen Sherman Mezzo-soprano. So pleased to have them with us!
