Natasha was offered her first directorial opportunity in 2009, directing Cavalleria Rusticana for Harrow Opera. This has since escalated into 7 operas for the London semi-professional circuit.
Natasha particularly enjoys working with young singers who need to develop their acting skills through her work as a director and working on characters and storytelling. The ability to produce honest, thoughtful and natural performances is of paramount importance to her, and her meticulous insistence on dramatic believability brings out passionate and confident performances in both scene studies and performance.
This being Natasha's sideline which she wishes to develop, her deep understanding of the voice is an obvious advantage when trying to to combine passion and vocal display with sound technique.
