An actor, opera singer and cabaret artist interested in extending our perceived boundaries of these art-forms.
Hailed by the New York Times as "radiant," NAOMI LOUISA O'CONNELL made her debut in 2012, starring on the West End in Terrence McNally’s play Master Class. A singer, actress and cabaret artist, her recent engagements include concerts at Carnegie Hall, three operatic world premieres, an off-Broadway play (The Irish Repertory Theatre), and her cabaret The Cheater's Almanac (Neue Galerie, NYC). Notable roles include Monteverdi's Poppea (Oper Frankfurt), Cherubino (Welsh National Opera, Atlanta Opera), Offenbach's La Périchole (Garsington Opera), Beaumarchais' Rosine (McCarter Theatre), and Mélisande--in both the play and opera--with the Cincinnati Symphony. Hailed as "a natural in the recital format" for her Carnegie Hall debut recital entitled ‘Witches, Bitches, and Women in Britches', she performs frequently across the USA. Naomi is a proud graduate of the Royal Irish Academy of Music and The Juilliard School. www.naomioconnell.com
