Profile: Kathryn Hannah, Chorus
What 3 things might people be surprised to learn about you?
I'm an extremely regular blood donor.
I like buying art and bargain antiques wherever I go.
I was once attacked by a jumping cholla.
What's your favourite opera moment or character?
I love Carmen and Cherubino equally.
What do you do when you're not singing?
Jogging, cooking, eating, sleeping, drinking tea, film watching, reading, walking, beading, seeing friends and family and spending time with my opera widower of a husband.
What are you listening to at the moment?
If I'm listening to anything frequently/constantly it is something I am bound to be learning or trying to memorise!
If you weren't an opera singer, what would be your ideal profession?
An international tea taster or full time painter.
Where is your favourite place to be in the world?
Anywhere where there are family/friends, a pot of tea and a good view.
What is your proudest moment to date?
I just sung a role and I was so proud because my family and friends were so proud and happy too. They were well entertained. I usually feel quite proud with a sense of achievement after any good show that have enjoyed being a part of. Then it's nice just to go home.
Kathryn is currently singing in the Chorus of The Elixir the Love.
