|Welcome to my website!
I work as a Surtitler at The Royal Opera, Covent Garden, translating,
editing and cueing English translations of opera texts which are
projected on a screen above the stage.
In a freelance capacity, I write surtitles for other opera companies,
and supply subtitles for operas and concerts on television, video
and DVD. I have also provided complete English translations of opera
libretti for CD.
I give talks on various operatic and musical subjects, including
subtitling and surtitling. I write opera synopses, programme notes
for concerts, CD notes, and articles on musical topics of particular
interest to me.
In my ‘spare’ time, I play the bassoon in a number of
chamber groups and orchestras, and have fun composing and arranging
