A Link to Published Works

My journey to reviewing opera started in May this year when Opera Australia posted an article on their Twitter feed, "Do you have what it takes to be a critic?". Although I had never written a review, it seemed a prefect opportunity to start expressing myself in a way I haven't before and sharing my thoughts about and experiences with opera. After submitting two reviews (Don Carlos and Wozzeck, blogged here) I became the successful candidate for Opera Australia's Melbourne season and the start was immediate. In the 6 months since, I have published 20 reviews and 2 previews across 4 websites and several reviews have been written here in my blog. It's a most enjoyable and rewarding outcome doing something I least expected but related to a part of my life where passion exists. Here are the links to my work to date:


  1. Your review represents both the performance and the experience pretty accurately. Would you publish a list of upcoming opera you plan to review?

  2. Hello Elias, thank you for your comment. I'm sorry I overlooked it. I use Twitter regularly to inform what opera I plan to see and what is coming up next. I will look at adding these plans to the blog a little further down the track. Come and join me on Twitter @OperaChaser! Look forward to hearing from you.
