Encore Meets – an Encore Radio podcast series. Go backstage in the West End, Broadway and beyond with Encore Radio’s exclusive theatre interviews.
In this episode of Encore Meets, we catch up with Fiona Finsbury, who is taking lead roles in Opera Undone – which is providing a new way for audiences to enjoy opera.
Tosca and La Bohème have been translated into English, had their stories re-set and shortened in length in an attempt to make the art form more accessible to a modern day audience.
Fiona tells us what theatregoers can expect, how she was inspired by Maria Callas and what she does to prepare to deliver a huge vocal performance every night.

Experience two enthralling tales of love, heartbreak and deception as they’ve never been told before in an evening suitable for newcomers and diehard fans alike.
The future of Opera starts here.
Opera Undone is on at Trafalgar Studios from 5th February.
