Shropshire lass Holly singing tragic Hilde

Shropshire-born soprano Holly Teague renews a successful partnership with producer Jonny Danciger when she sings in the Opera Studio – a two-day celebration of innovative chamber works – at the OSO Arts Centre, Barnes, west London, on 23 and 24 September.

Jonny has invited her to sing the role of Hilde in No Way Out! – a sequential trilogy of one-act operas, exploring the self that we all find ourselves locked in to. The work, written by Christopher Wood, is inspired by Jean-Paul Sartre’s No Exit, colliding three fundamentally incompatible, emotionally-flawed individuals, with tragic results.

Holly has previously worked with independent producer/director Jonny on opera projects in Oxford and with Cumbria Festival Opera. For No Way Out! She teams up for the first time with Sutton-based Guest House Opera’s Paddy Cockshutt and acclaimed young Kiwi tenor Harry Grigg.

Since leaving the Royal College of Music with an MPerf degree Holly has been singing opera, sacred music, early music and chamber works the length and breadth of the country. Recently she recorded Shropshire Lass – an album of Mary Webb poems for voice and guitar, set by composer Martin Bussey.
