Sidonie with Woodhouse Opera

March 22, 2016

2016 has been a busy year so far…

 

This February I ventured into early music territory with a spot of Lully. Playing the role on Sidonie in Armide with Woodhouse Opera, it was a wonderful stylised production, set in beautiful picturesque surroundings at Woodhouse Copse in Surrey.

 

 

 

Directed by Marcio da Silva in Woodhouse’s indoor Baroque theatre (a converted indoor swimming pool; the pool remains under the wooden floor, giving the space a great resonance), the opera was presented almost in the round with the audience on three sides of the acting area. The opera was simple but stylised, with some fabulous costumes, and not to mention some tremendous goth make-up – I do love dressing up!! And we also got a great review to boot:
