My relationship with Victorian Opera began in 2006. As a recent high school graduate I noticed a call for auditions in the paper for a new opera company, Victorian Opera. I went along to those auditions as an optimistic, idealistic; some might say naïve,18 year old. I sang and it was recommended to me that I audition for a new program that the company was looking at developing - the Victorian Youth Opera. So, a couple of months later I re-auditioned for Noye’s Fludde and was invited to perform the lofty role of God in the very first opera for Victorian Opera. Fast-forward 7 years and I am [but a month away from] graduating from the inaugural class of the new Masters of Music (Opera Performance) program.
