Praised for her ‘unaffected simplicity’ (Classical Source) and ‘velvety mezzo’ timbres (The Telegraph), Camilla made her stage debut at Buxton International Festival as Prince Charming in Viardot’s Cendrillon prior to spending the most recent season at Glyndebourne Festival Opera (Chorus).

There, she was the First Prize recipient of the Betty Bannerman Award for French Song (2022), the Brigitte Fassbaender Award for Lieder (2021) and the Creative Innovator Award (2021). Most recently, she was awarded First Prize at the Sir John Maddison Opera Award (2022). 


As a collaborative performer, she founded the devising ensemble, the New Renaissance Collective in 2018 and has co-created and performed in productions including Beaten Gold and an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Venus & Adonis. In concert, she has performed recitals for Manchester Song Festival, Clonter Opera as well oratorio repertoire such as Händel’s Messiah (Leeds Minster) and Mozart’s Requiem (King’s College Chapel). She also performs baroque repertoire regularly with Musica Antica and the Zimmerman Band in London. 

Her other operatic roles include creating Bella in Smail’s new work, Blue Electric (Tête à Tête; Playground Theatre); Cherubino in Le nozze di Figaro (RNCM); Mrs. Nolan in Menotti’s The Medium (RNCM); Mary in Tavener’s Mary of Egypt (King’s College Chapel, Cambridge) and scenes as Fox in Janáček’s The Cunning Little Vixen (Morley Opera); Jemmy in Rossini’s Guillame Tell (Morley Opera); Tisbe in Rossini’s La Cenerentola (Morley Opera); Don Ettore in Haydn’s La Canterina (RNCM); Hänsel in Humperdinck’s Hänsel und Gretel (NOS Short Course).

Camilla came to music at an early age, signing with the cross-over group, Angelis, under Sony BMG. She studied English at Girton College, Cambridge and then Social Inequality at LSE where she published articles for Classical Music magazine on freelance music making (here and here). She is also a keen aerial artist and a member of the Salon Collective, where she trains in Meisner’s acting method.

She recently reprised the role of Prince Charming (Cendrillon) in a UK tour in February after a return to Bergen National Opera for chorus in Parsifal (Edward Gardner). In spring, she will record a programme of French song with Craig White for Clonter Opera. She also looks forward to touring Händel’s duo cantata ‘Aminta e Fillide’ with soprano, Georgie Malcolm, after performing several roles in BYO’s summer production, ‘A Pilgrim’s Progress’ and making her debut at the Wigmore Hall as soloist for new work, Threnos (Howard - Made in Manchester).
