Born in Bangor, she previously read Music at the University of Leeds, spending a year studying voice at the Strasbourg Conservatoire.

Whilst at the RNCM, Morgana has performed the role of Marcellina in Le nozze di Figaro and the title role in Menotti’s The Medium, as well as Medoro Orlando, Augusta Tabor The Ballad of Baby Doe, Mercédès Carmen for RNCM opera scenes.

Later this year she will perform the role of Vava in Shostakovich’s Cherry Town, Moscow (WNO Youth Company) and cover the role of Coll in Anna Appleby’s Drought (RNCM & BBC Philharmonic).

A keen recitalist, Morgana has been a member of the RNCM Songsters throughout her studies and recently performed Mahler’s Rückert-Lieder accompanied by NEW Sinfonia at St Asaph Cathedral. She looks forward to presenting more song repertoire this year including Rodrigo’s Tres canciones españolas with classical guitar, works by Stephen Hough accompanied by the composer, and a lunchtime recital for Leeds Lieder at Leeds Conservatoire.

Morgana was previously a Serena Fenwick Young Artist for British Youth Opera, a member of the Glyndebourne Academy and took part in the RNCM Opera North Chorus mentoring programme.
