"Powerful, Romantic, Electrifying, Inspiring, and Captivating"
- Soprano, Imogen-Faith Malfitano, Finalist in the 2017 Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship.
"Opera offers a unique experience. From the moment the conductor enters the theatre and the orchestra tune, the audience, whilst growing somewhat fidgety, await in suspense. Everything is grand. The costumes, the set, the lighting, the music and the orchestra. There is something surreal yet familiar. Beauty of sound and realism of emotion is what captivates an audience and ensures they maintain their excitement from start to finish.
Opera combines my two greatest loves; acting and singing and unites them on stage. There is no greater thrill than performing live, immersed in a character and delivering the magic that is opera. Giving purpose to my voice, it colours my emotions and transcends me spiritually. Opera is a powerful communicator and romantic art form that heightens drama and ignites passion. You don’t have to understand the language to appreciate opera. Emotions are universal. "
