Sophie was born in London, but grew up in sunny Sydney, Australia. She trained first in Acting, at Sydney’s celebrated Theatre Nepean at the University of Western Sydney.

Sophie went on to work as an actor and director: her acting credits include roles in Traitors, Medea, A Beautiful Life, Titus Andronicus, Julius Caesar, Pentecost, Measure for Measure and Crave. She was a resident director for Mountains Youth Theatre and helmed The Real Inspector Hound, Hating Alison Ashley and Educating Rita for them.

An opportunity to join the Young Artist scheme with Pacific Opera led to Sophie undertaking a Masters of Music at the Royal Northern College of Music, studying with Mary Plazas, in 2010. Sophie was also the recipient of The Allan Mullins Scholarship, The Farleigh Vocal Scholarship and the Eunice Pettigrew Prize at the RNCM. She was fortunate to join the Buxton International Festival Young Artist Programme in 2013.

Operatic roles have included Bernstein, Trouble in Tahiti (Dinah), Puccini Madama Butterfly (Kate), Verdi La Traviata (Flora), Sullivan The Mikado (Pitti-Sing), Verdi Otello (Emilia), Rossini Otello (Emilia), Tchaikovsky Eugene Onegin (Olga), Mozart La Finta Giardiniera (Ramiro), Janáček The Cunning Little Vixen (Fox), Haydn Orlando Paladino (Alcina), Rimsky-Korsakov Kaschey the Immortal (Kascheyevna), Handel Serse (Arsamene), Semele (Ino and Juno), Britten Albert Herring (Nancy), and world premieres of Benjamin Ellin’s Beyond the Screen (Morena), Tom Floyd's Micromegas (Poet) and the title role in Bizet’s Carmen.

On the concert platform, notable solo appearances include Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle & Stabat Mater, Mozart Requiem, Haydn Creation Mass and Nelson Mass, Vivaldi Gloria, Bach Magnificat, Mendelssohn’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream & Elijah, and Aaron Copland’s In the beginning.

Sophie currently studies with renowned Australian soprano, Yvonne Kenny and is will sing Kate in Madama Butterfly at West Green House and Dinah in Trouble in Tahiti at the Chichester and Shepparton Festivals this summer.

Recently, Sophie also returned to her theatre-making roots, joining Shadow Opera as a Producer and assisting Director, Stephen Medcalf, on Grange Park Opera’s Die Walküre. Shadow Opera specialises in new work and interdisciplinary music projects. Their latest project, STOP ALL THE CLOCKS!, received great acclaim at The Copeland Gallery last winter.
