Irish mezzo soprano leaves mark outside Gaiety
Raphaela Papadakis seems to like ‘playing with fire’. After her acclaimed performance as the put-upon maid, Anna, in Independent Opera’s production of Šimon Voseček’s Beidermann and the Arsonists at Sadler’s Wells last year, she is currently rehearsing for the premiere this week of And London Burned, a new opera by Matt Rogers which has been commissioned by Temple Music Foundation to commemorate the 350th anniversary of The Great Fire of London.

Renowned Irish mezzo soprano Bernadette Greevy said it was a "great honour" to leave her handprints outside Dublin's Gaeity theatre earlier today.
