YOU WORKED WITH DIRECTOR LINDY HUME FOR IPHIGÉNIE. IS IT COMFORTING TO WORK WITH DIRECTORS MULTIPLE TIMES? HOW DOES THE RELATIONSHIP DEVELOP?
I can’t wait to hear Lindy’s ideas for this piece. I guess I will find out how things develop, but I know I trust in her way of working completely and I’m genuinely excited to get to that rehearsal floor. Having established a fruitful relationship already, I know we’re going to be able to get down to work without hesitation.
YOU'RE CURRENTLY BASED IN VIENNA. TELL US WHAT YOU LIKE THE MOST ABOUT RETURNING HOME TO PERFORM IN AUSTRALIA?
It’s a very special feeling whenever I’m able to return to perform in Australia and I’m excited to be invited back to perform for Pinchgut Opera this year. Clearly, the company know how to bring this special art form and repertoire to life, creating productions from a place of real passion from everyone involved. They’ve hit the mark again and again for their audiences, and I imagine readers might want to get in early for tickets to Theodora.
