2002-07-10 Italy

If I was to live anywhere other than Ireland, it might just be Italy. The question is, which part? I was engaged to sing the Narrator in LEnfance du Christ (Berlioz) alongside the Italian Diva Katia Ricciarelli in the role of the Virgin Mary.

2002-07-03 Languages

I think my elocution teacher, the lovely Mrs Mary Watson, was secretly quite flattered that I had named my pet hen (Mary the Hen) after her. I loved my elocution classes.

2002-06-05 Vocal health okay 9 times out of 10

WHEN a violinist takes his/her violin out of its case, the instrument will, nine times out of ten, work. The player may be feeling under the weather or possibly even have injured a finger or something, but the instrument will, nine times out of ten, be in full working order.

2002-05-23 Singing my way up the Volga

A few years back, in between two Scottish Opera contracts, I had a couple of weeks off in which I was offered to sing on a cruise up the Volga. The deal was to perform a recital, two performances of "Eugene Onegin", and join the cruise for the remainder.
