...it’s the women who really steal the show... Individually they are excellent, but they come into their own in harmonies that really bounce off the bare walls with control and power. And, sung in English without surtitles in an unforgiving space, I’m delighted to report that you can hear every word - Gary Naylor, BroadwayWorld.com (2019)

Fae has the coloratura for the Queen of the Night - larkreviews.co.uk (2017)

A revelation was Fae Evelyn whose clear high notes echoed around the hall - newtonnews.co.uk (2015)

[Fae's] ‘Porgi, amor, qualche ristoro’ (in this case, ‘love leaves me here alone’) is the aria of the evening - FringeOpera.com October 2014 (2014)

Fae Evelyn sang the two arias with affecting directness, given further lift by the subtlety of her singing and an attractive stage persona – Peter Reed, Opera Magazine, December 2014 (2014)

Ms Evelyn's second half aria [Dove Sono] is the standout, the hairs on the back of the neck moment – BroadwayWorld.com, October 2014 (2014)

[Fae] showed a voice of power and promise - Artsmart.co.za August 2010 (2010)

[Fae] displayed a full, true voice that in quality, training and presentation was far ahead of the standard of most - Artsmart.co.za April 2008 (2008)

I am a South African Soprano living and working in London.

I spent many years studying classical singing with Colleen Philp in South Africa, and continued my studies with Colleen while at the University of KwaZulu-Natal. After graduating summa cum laude, I moved to the Manchester to attend the Royal Northern College of Music for my MMus under Sandra Dugdale’s tutelage. I am currently coached by Graeme Danby.

Operatic highlights usually involve performing fierce and fun characters such as Josephine in HMS Pinafore with Rocket Opera, Queen of The Night in Opera South East’s The Magic Flute, and Countess in OperaUpClose’s critically acclaimed Marriage of Figaro. I was also thrilled to premier the roles of Ilse in Noah Mosley’s July 1944, Thornstein Shiver in Alex Paxton’s For the Love of Thornstein Shiver (both Helios Opera), and Queen Hygd in Louis Mander’s world premiere of Beowulf (Opera Chilmark). Additionally, I have had the pleasure of performing with Grange Park Opera Ensemble and the Opera Holland Park Chorus on multiple occasions. I am also an English National Opera extra chorus soprano.

On the concert and recital platforms, I perform extensively in the UK and South Africa. I have also added Switzerland to the list, performing Die Braut in Dvořák’s Die Geisterbraut with Ars Cantata Zürich. I work regularly with the Friends of Music and Music Revival concert series’, and the KwaZulu-Natal Philharmonic Orchestra in South Africa. And I brought the music of South Africa to the England too, performing a series of Soundscapes of South Africa concerts in and around London.

I am a busy oratorio soloist and enjoy the privilege of singing with many choral societies around the UK. Personal highlights include Mendelssohn’s Elijah, Mozart’s Mass in C Minor, and Orff’s Carmina Burana.
