Reviews For Patience In Norwich
"Plainest of the lovesick maidens is The Lady Jane, sung tonight by understudy Susan Moore. You would not know this, as she delivers a masterpiece of comic timing and performance in this Contralto role, and receives warm applause for her efforts at the curtain call"
"For this farewell performance, Susan Moore replaced Valerie Reid as the doughty Lady Jane. Her “rugged old bosom” harbours a splendid traditional contralto, and she makes a great job of her solo, accompanying herself not on a cello, but on a double bass whose generous curves echo her own"
"Susan Moore making good use of her ample charms and matching contralto tones in the role of Lady Jane"

I am very excited to be starting the design process on the 2017 W11 Opera CUTLASS CREW based on the real life story of Lady Mary Killigrew. You can register to audition from the beginning of June and I will be sending out information about registering and the audition process in the next couple of weeks. Anyone between the ages of 9-18 can audition and we take as many applicants as we can. If you love singing, acting and dancing this is the company for you! We offer training as part of the rehearsal process in good vocal technique, stage craft and movement. Roles are allocated on merit so it doesn't matter if this is your first time on stage or you are really experienced, there are lots of opportunities for all.
