Roxanne is an opera singer, librettist and science disseminator. She likes to explore presenting new opera, on esoteric subject matter, in unique spaces, to different audiences. She co-founded the company Infinite Opera (with composer Daniel Blanco Albert) in order to combine her love of science, philosophy and music. Through this company she has successfully received ACE and Hinrichsen Foundation funding on several occasions. She has also begun collaborating with composer Oliver Farrow under the group name Roki and Roli.
Her performed repertoire includes: Rosalinda (Die Fledermaus, J. Strauss), Lucy Lockitt (The Beggar’s Opera, Gay arr. Britten), Nora (Riders to the Sea, V. Williams), Fiordiligi (Cosi Fan Tutte, Mozart), Besse (Besse: Water, Rye and Hops, Daniel Blanco) and Baron Entropy (Entanglement! An Entropic Tale, Blanco). She enjoys programming recitals around themes including the visual arts and feminism.
Roxanne also works in outreach and is an Opera Animateur on WNO’s Engage the Black Country program. For this she works with young people to develop new works performed by the students. She is also participating as a performer in the PMLD program bringing opera to young people with profound mental disabilities. She regularly delivers workshops to adults and students in Higher Education on devising techniques, singing and creative writing.
Upcoming roles include: Norina in Don Pasquale for Novella Opera (at MAC Birmingham) and Baron Entropy in Entanglement! An Entropic Tale for Infinite Opera (at Dig Brew) and Madame Ho in The Buddha and the Monkey King.
