Peter Grimes

Best ENO moment?
When we recorded the Shelter single. For me, this neatly encapsulated everything ENO is about – inclusion, diversity, sharing music, filling the Coliseum and making a difference.

Started playing the violin to keep up with my siblings

Passion outside of opera?
Love time with my family, baking cakes and I am trying to love running!
