Roxanne Korda is a soprano and librettist working in the fields of music theatre and opera to express esoteric subject matter in a unique and thought provoking way.
Recent and upcoming work:
The Biscuit Song
During lockdown Roxanne Korda wrote, performed and co-created the short film for “The Biscuit Song Premiere” to document the effect of biscuit withdrawal symptoms. Beware biscuits shall be required when watching this video.
It was a resounding success thanks to the attendance and participation of all audience present and comments could be heard such as:
“Huge fun. Absolutely takes the biscuit. I loved the animations as well as the music” (Michael)
“This is the best thing that ever happened . . . The world needs more of this”. (Rudabeh)

The Flowering Desert: The Measurer
Previously in lockdown the Infinite Opera team (Roxanne Korda – soprano and librettist, Daniel Blanco Albert – composer), in collaboration with the film maker Tadas Stalyga, completed the first in a series of videos for their current project – The Flowering Desert. This opera is based on the discovery of the TRAPPIST-1 solar system. The Measurer is an astrophysicist. They are watching the Atacaman sky from the mountains of the La Silla observatory in Chilli.
We presented this film at research festivals throughout the summer with many expressing an unexpected emotional reaction. You can watch it here.
