Rebecca Smith

Rebecca joined York Opera in 2007 and has since sung various roles with the company, including the third genie in The Magic Flute and Jill in excerpts from Merrie England. Rebecca also covered the title role of Dido in Dido and Aeneas. Most recently, she confesses to having had great fun performing as Mad Margaret in Ruddigore. Having studied music at Leeds College of Music, where she gained a First and won various piano and academic prizes, Rebecca now teaches the piano at two schools in York and also teaches music privately. She studies singing with Jacqui Edwards and is looking forward to performing the role of the Fairy Queen in Iolanthe, having learnt most of her lines for it sitting on a tropical beach in Australia!
