The Rape of Lucretia


ROL L.Mazzanti 19.10.20

Following the postponement of The Rape of Lucretia from March 22nd this year, in which Rebecca would have sung the title role, it was hoped that the production would have been remounted on 29th November. Today, the difficult decision to further postpone has been taken and a new date for Spring 2021 will be announced in due course. Rebecca wishes her colleagues well and looks forward to her debut in the role next year at St. John’s Waterloo, London.

Whenever we are made to part we live
within each other’s heart, both waiting, each wanting…

Hope, optimism and  dynamism remain at the centre of all our lives as we navigate through uncharted territory towards our return to the stage and platform.

Reliving musical memories #SolaceinNature

Rebecca is delighted to share with you a track from 2017 recorded live and unedited with Alice Turner at the piano. Mendelssohn’s Neue Liebe takes us on an adventure wonderfully evoked by the poetry of Heinrich Heine and in English translation by Richard Stokes. We hope you enjoy listening.


In dem Mondenschein im Walde
Sah ich jüngst die Elfen reiten,
Ihre Hörner hört’ ich klingen,
Ihre Glöcklein hört’ ich läuten.
Ihre weißen Rößlein trugen
Gold’nes Hirschgeweih’ und flogen
Rasch dahin; wie wilde Schwäne
Kam es durch die Luft gezogen.
Lächelnd nickte mir die Kön’gin,
Lächelnd, im Vorüberreiten.
Galt das meiner neuen Liebe?
Oder soll es Tod bedeuten?

In the moonlight of the forest
I saw of late the elves riding,
I heard their horns resounding,
I heard their little bells ring.
Their little white horses
Had golden antlers and flew
Quickly past; like wild swans
They came through the air.
With a smile the queen nodded to me,
With a smile she rode quickly by,
Was it to herald a new love?
Or does it signify death?
