Opera North is delighted to welcome mezzo soprano Camille Maalawy. Born to a Coptic Egyptian father and English mother, her repertoire incorporates western classical music, as well as classical Arabic music. She explored this dual heritage in a new song cycle developed during her Resonance residency at Opera North earlier this year, which she then performed at this summer’s Tête à Tête opera festival. Why not come and sing along from the comfort of your home? Workshops are open to singers of all abilities. No prior musical knowledge is required. There is a minimal fee for participation.
