The true star of the show, never faltering in her performance
Biography and CV

Jessica most recently worked as one of the resident opera singers in Harrods, Knightsbridge, singing the world's best loved arias to the public and to special guests, including Simon Cowell, Alan Sugar, Dita Von Tesse and Nicolas Cage.

Jessica studied theatre, music and performance at the University of Warwick. She is in her twelth year of classical vocal study.

She has performed in Promises Promises at the Sheffield Crucible, directed by Angus Jackson, and in the European premiere of the lost Gershwin musical Treasure Girl at the Cardiff International Music Theatre Festival, starring Patricia Hodge.

She has also performed with the Carl Rosa Opera Company in HMS Pinafore, directed by Timothy West. She also worked with Starlight Opera, the International Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Company and as a soloist in The Thursford Christmas Spectacular.

Other roles include Eurydice (Orpheus in the Underworld), Adele (Die Fledermaus), Beggar Woman (Sweeney Todd), Woman 1 (Closer Than Ever) and various characters from Posh Spice to the Queen in the long-running satire show Newsrevue.

Her pantomime experience includes the title role in Snow White and the Seven Dwarves and the Cowardly Lion in The Wizard of Oz. In Christmas 2003 she played the Queen of Hearts and the Mad March Hare in Alice in Wonderland in Blackburn. Her performance of the Queen was described by The Stage as 'splendidly unpredictable... slotting straight into an episode of Blackadder'.

She has performed on several occasions with the London Mozart Players and can be heard on The Sounds of Music CD Collection, as well as the recording of the new musical Fawkes and the United Nations' World Food Programme. Recent films include Shakespeare in Doubt and Poets.

Jessica is also active as a singer for weddings and other social functions.
