La Diavolessa for New Chamber Opera

Purporting to have devised Opera Buffa as we know it today, Baldassare  Galuppi and his librettist Carlo Goldoni wrote La Diavolessa an 18th century comedy, set in Naples, featuring the usual tales of mistaken identity, summoned spirits and elements of farce. There are three more shows remaining and to find out more about the production, do follow this link for a review by Curtis Rogers.
We’re all delighted to be performing live again, particularly in the beautiful setting of the Warden’s Garden of New College, Oxford.

Presteigne Premieres album released today on Resonus


Last August, a truly remarkable feat was accomplished in recording this superb, new album in the midst of a global pandemic – proving that despite constraints, artists and music will always flourish. Certainly,  George Vass, conductor and Artistic Director of Presteigne Festival, together with producer, editor and engineer, Adam Binks found a way and Rebecca is delighted to feature on this release in three songs by Hugh Wood.

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…
