In her new album she showcases her stunning voice in a selection of much-loved numbers from operetta, musicals and film, including music from Die Fledermaus, My Fair Lady, West Side Story, The Wizard of Oz and more, with the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestraconducted by David Charles Abellin an album which Norman Lebrecht declared ‘Irresistible’.
