Olivia is a 24-year-old soprano from Hertfordshire based in London. Last year, Olivia received a generous scholarship from the Countess of Munster Musical Trust which allowed her to complete her Masters of Music at the Royal Northern College of Music with a distinction under the tutelage of Deborah Rees. She also graduated with a First Class Bachelors of Music degree from the RNCM in 2018. Throughout her undergraduate degree, she has performed several principle roles such as Blanche de la Force in Poulenc’s Dialogue des Carmelites, The Dew Fairy in Humperdink’s Hansel and Gretel, Helena in Britten’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Maria Bertram in Dove’s Mansfield Park. In July 2019, she performed at Buxton International Opera Festival making her debut at the festival covering the role of Rutilia in Cladara’s forgotten gem, Lucio Pappirio Dittattore. She has worked closely with composers in discovering the world of contemporary classical music, which resulted in her premiering a one-woman operetta called Growth of the Silk which was received very well at Tete-a-Tete Opera festival in August 2019. The performance was deemed “the highlight of the festival for me” by Tete-a-Tete’s founder, Bill Bankes-Jones. Olivia looks forward to an exciting collaboration with esteemed contemporary classical composer, Gary Lloyd, in his new cutting-edge composition regarding the Covid-19 crisis as well as a principle role of Francoise with Buxton Opera Festival in July 2021 in Hahn’s Ciboulette.
As a freelance repetiteur, Silvia has worked for many leading international music festivals and opera houses including Welsh National Opera, Opera North, Stresa Festival, La Biennale di Venezia and Cantiere Internazinoale d’Arte, under the direction of internationally renowned conductors such as Martyn Brabbins, Martin André, Francesco Ivan Ciampa, and alongside international soloists as Natalya Romaniw, Alice Coote, Catherine Wyn-Rogers, Michael Fabiano, Roderick Williams. Silvia has played a wide repertoire including opera, ballet and world premieres (works by Boccadoro, Ambrosini, Vetrano). From September 2017 to July 2019 Silvia was the Junior Fellow Repetiteur at the Royal Northern College of Music. She is also an active performer with a wide chamber music and soloistic repertoire. She has given many recitals, including a recent gala at Manchester’s Bridgewater Hall. As a conductor, she has recently worked with the Manchester Chamber Choir, RNCM Chamber Choir and RNCM Chamber Ensemble. In July, Silvia will conduct the Orchestra Sinfonica Florentia at the 45th Cantiere Internazionale d’Arte Festival in Montepulciano.
