Age when you started singing

The first memory I have of singing is the same as most people - around age 5, in my parents living room to The Sound of Music with a skirt on my head (the costume department made cuts that season).

Favourite opera or musical

How can you pick a favourite?! I’m too egalitarian for favourites. However, Tosca, if you had to twist my arm, Annie if you had to twist my leg, and Nixon in China, if I had to twist again like we did last summer.

Favourite opera or musical role to perform

Again with the favouritism! I dream of being asked to play The Pirate King... one day...

A fun fact not many people know about you

I enjoy making sauerkraut, I am a master sandwich maker (the secret is in the layers), and I would give Marie Kondo a run for her money if we had a suitcase packing contest!

What do you like to sing in the shower?

'I’m Gonna Wash that Man Right Outta My Hair' is a real crowd pleaser.
