Becca began her stage career at 18, in the role of Magda Goebles in Michael Black’s play Propaganda at the Edinburgh Fringe. Becca subsequently read English at the University of Oxford, where she played major roles, including the title role in Hedda Gabler, and the leading lady in Macbeth. Here, Becca rediscovered her passion for singing, creating the country's first improvised musical, which toured the UK and USA in 2008.
In 2010 Becca committed herself solely to classical singing, and in 2011 was offered a place at Trinity Laban, where she was awarded both the Morag Noble Scholarship and the Roy Pleasance Prize for voice and orchestra. Alongside her studies, Becca worked professionally, singing Amelia for OperaUpClose’s production of Un Ballo in Maschera, and Tosca at the Soho Theatre in 2013, as well as creating the role of Gala Dali in Ergo Phizmiz’s 2015 commission, Gala!, all to critical acclaim.
Becca began an ongoing relationship with Cantata Drammatica in 2013, creating the roles of Werburh and Matilda in Cantata Eliensis. She was subsequently invited to sing in their most recent commission, Beowulf, in 2016.
Since completing her masters with a distinction in September 2014, Becca has sung with Winslow Hall and Grange Park Opera Choruses, performed Donna Elvira in Moonlittle theatre’s Don Giovanni, and created the role of the Maid in Louis Mander’s latest opera for Tête à Tête. Last autumn she sang Mimi in the King’s Head Theatre’s ground-breaking new production of La Bohéme for which she also wrote the libretto, and in February she returned to the King’s Head to sing the title role in Madam Butterfly.
Working with Pianist and collaborator Panaretos Kyriazidis, Becca won first prize in the 2017 AESS Patricia Routeledge English Song and Speech Competition.
This summer Becca sang Ortlinde in Die Walküre for Grange Park Opera. She then joined TimeZone Theatre singing Silvia in Mascagni’s Zanetto, and Bianca in Zemlinsky’s A Florentine Tragedy as part of the 2017 Opera in the City Festival.
She is currently working on a new libretto for Puccini’s Tosca, to be performed at the King’s Head in the Autumn, in which she will sing the title role.
In addition, Becca has given several recitals, and sung the soprano solo in Verdi’s epic requiem.
