Sydney Eisteddfod Opera Scholarship: Stephanie Gibson

Originally from Melbourne, Australia, Stephanie Gibson completed her Bachelor and Masters of Music at the University of Melbourne. Twice a scholarship recipient of the Dame Nellie Melba Opera Trust, Stephanie was also awarded support from the Dennis O’Neill Foundation and Academic Trust of University of Wales Trinity St David.

With these latter scholarships, Stephanie studied under Dennis O’Neill and Nuccia Foccile in Cardiff, United Kingdom. Stephanie was awarded a supporting scholarship to participate in English National Opera’s newly revised OperaWorks program, culminating in a series of performances as Mdme Herz, conducted by Peter Robinson.

During her time abroad Stephanie has performed numerous roles including Helena in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Bergeré in Gluck's Armide and Queen of the Night in Mozart’s The Magic Flute to notable review. Stephanie is now a resident of Sydney, where she is discovering the local, musical community and also enjoys a successful career as an author.
