    About me

    Soprano Fiona Finsbury trained at the RNCM School of Vocal Studies and Opera under the tutelage of Jane Irwin. ​ 

    Her 2020 season includes Musetta in Opera Undone at the Trafalgar Studios, Euridice in Orfeus at the Young Vic, Albina in La Donna Del Lago at the Buxton Opera House, Tatyana in Onegin at Cooper Hall, and Time in  Ein Wintermärchen at the National Opera House, Wexford. 

    Fiona has a keen interest in contemporary opera; she created the role of Hanna in the world premiere of Adam Gorb's The Path To Heaven, and sang Sofia in the British premiere of The Orphans of Koombu at the Buxton Opera House.  In July 2020 she will be singing the soprano solo in the world premiere of Kate Whitely's Oratorio 'Our Future: In Your Hands' .

     

    Other operatic roles performed include Gretel, Cendrillon, Métella, First Niece (at the RNCM), Elvira (L'italiana in Algeri) at the Mananan Opera Festival, and Mimì for Hampstead Garden Opera.

    Fiona is a Serena Fenwick Young Artist, a Leverhulme Arts Scholar and an Iford New Generation Artist. 

    Prior to her studies at the RNCM, Fiona was a professional actor.  From 2013-2015 she was in the West End cast of The Phantom of the Opera, covering and playing Carlotta.  Other Musical Theatre roles performed include Susan in Company, Lily in The Secret Garden and Laurey in Oklahoma!  She can be seen in the ITV series 'Victoria', playing the opera singer in the 2017 Christmas Day episode.  

    She is a core member of the world's only improvising opera company, 'Impropera', and has performed with them at The Royal Festival Hall, Kings Place, The British Museum and at Lewis Cubitt Square as part of the Tête-à-Tête festival.
