The Opera Pod

Dec 2, 2021

Kate remembers both music and theatre from her Methodist church and her local amateur dramatic society, where many of her family took roles on the stage – and they had to find a suitable place for Kate. So backstage was where she began, and when their performance of Oliver! went on tour to the Minack Theatre, Kate was surprised to discover that Stage Management was a real profession, and dug out a dusty drama school prospectus on her return, and applied to the Central School of Speech and Drama. From her early roles as a dresser and an ASM, to attempting to get a job as a follow-spot operator under the name of Kate Moss, Kate chats through her journey which saw her join Opera North over 20 years ago having never seen an opera production.
