She works in the realms of opera & artsong, with a background in theatre & devising new works.

Bea just got back from a writing pilgrimage in Paris!

Tabula Rasa, a new Dada jazz opera with score by Felix Jarrar, explores the feminist story of muse and memoirist Kiki de Montparnasse throughout the 1920s in the Montparnasse quarters of Paris. Brittany spent a few weeks in Europe walking the streets where Kiki and her lover Man Ray used to live, love and make art.

Tabula Rasa will be premiered in New York Opera Fest kicking off on May 4th at a very sexy, secret location in Midtown East. Follow us on social media for details! In the meantime, have a listen to the opening number from the show, Blue !
