Recently Verity was fortunate enough to make her opera debut stepping in to play the role of Pamina in Mozart’s The Magic Flute on the main stage at Garsington Opera alongside the main cast, including artists such as Benjamin Hulett, Adrian Thompson and James Creswell, conducted by Christian Curnyn. She also performed a recital of English love songs including the world premiere of Graham Ross’ ‘Fools Love’ with Andrew Staples, Alisdair Hogarth and Laura Mucha at Wigmore Hall. They performed some of this work live on BBC Radio 3’s In Tune. At the Hertford Festival she performed the premiere of the soprano arrangement of Stephen Hough’s ‘Herbstlieder’, previously written for baritone and fellow Prince Consort member, Jacques Imbrailo, along with his ‘Other Love Songs’ with the composer and pianist at the piano.
