Another reason to brag!


After watching young singers of 17-22 years of age competing in the Operatic Aria in 2005, one of Sydney Eisteddfod was informed by a dedicated opera buff that we had unearthed a rare gem in winner Julie Goodwin.  She's only 17, he marvelled, but her truly voice is beautiful and she has a real star quality. Five years on, Sydney Eisteddfod is happy to report that Julie has been selected from 850 applicants across the nation to play Maria in West Side Story (opening at the Lyric Theatre in July). Congratulations Julie, you have proven yourself as one of Sydney Eisteddfod's rare gems and your name is already shining in its galaxy of stars.
