    About me

    I'm an Italian performer based in central London, graduated from the Musical Theatre Course at the Royal Academy of Music.

    Vocally I'm a soprano with a strong legit quality, and belt up to an E. As an actress, I have lots of imagination and passion for my work, and I like to transform myself according to the character, bringing my own creativity and attention to details to each job, which is something that has always drawn the attention of directors and teachers I've worked with. I have strong cabaret and comedic skills and I'm extremely professional and committed, though maintaining all the time a light and positive approach to the job, with a good sense of humour. Roles I have portrayed go from the typical romantic heroine, to larger than life diva roles, from the quirky but innocent to the mad and terrifying. In any role I'm cast, I always portray the strongest personality in the most natural way and always try to find both good and bad, comic and dramatic traits in every role, to make it real but never predictable. Being of an adventurous nature, I love to throw myself into all sorts of different projects and catch every opportunity to develop as an actress and as a singer
