Soprano Sky Ingram is living her dream in London, learning her craft from the world’s best.
The 28-year-old Elder Conservatorium of Music graduate is one of just a dozen singers from around the world to win a place at the acclaimed National Opera Studio, where she has just completed her first term.
Sky’s selection was based on her outstanding results at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where Sky proved her extraordinary talent, winning a string of leading operatic roles and also the 2012 Harold Rosenthal Prize.
In the past year she has performed Frau Fluth in Die Lusigen Weiber von Windsor, Helena in A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Gerda in Fennimore & Gerda and Emily in Our Town. Another highlight was meeting the Queen at Buckingham Palace for a reception held to honour Australians who are leaders in their respective fields.
“The past few years in London have been amazing, but you can’t get by on talent alone. It takes a lot of hard work and persistence because you are surrounded by so many people at the top of their game. That’s inspiring in itself and actually motivates you to reach a higher level,” she said.
Sky gained a First Class Honours degree in Music (Performance) from the University of Adelaide in 2006.
