Born in Australia and now based in London, Anna has established an international career spanning opera, theatre, concert, and film.
After graduating from the Victorian College of the Arts, Anna became a Principal Artist at Victorian Opera, singing Polly Peachum in THE THREEPENNY OPERA and Pamina in THE MAGIC FLUTE.
Anna was chosen by Andrew Lloyd Webber to create the role of Christine Daaé in LOVE NEVER DIES, his sequel to THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA. This new production premiered at The Regent Theatre in Melbourne and subsequently transferred to the Capitol Theatre in Sydney. Anna was nominated for Sydney Theatre and Green Room awards for her portrayal of Christine. Lauded as the definitive production of this musical, LOVE NEVER DIES was filmed and released in cinemas internationally by Universal Pictures. The DVD and Blu-Ray release debuted at #1 on the international music charts, and #4 on the overall charts.
Following the success of LOVE NEVER DIES, Anna was invited to make her West End debut as Christine in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA in the flagship production of the show at Her Majesty’s Theatre, London. She then created the role of Jenny Lind in Cameron Mackintosh’s BARNUM (Chichester Festival Theatre), the process of which was featured in the documentary THE SOUND OF MUSICALS (Channel 4). Anna then returned to the West End in Robert Allan Ackerman’s STRANGERS ON A TRAIN (Gielgud Theatre). In 2015, she played Anne Egerman in A LITTLE NIGHT MUSIC (Palace Theatre) as part of the show’s 40th anniversary celebrations. She then debuted with English National Opera in their landmark production of SWEENEY TODD, starring Bryn Terfel and Emma Thompson. She became the first actress to perform as Christine in THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA in Russia, in a special performance broadcast nationally from the Bolshoi Theatre as part of the Golden Mask Awards. She regularly performs internationally on the concert stage, and has sung for royalty, world leaders and dignitaries.
Anna returned to her hometown of Melbourne to perform the role of Maria in a sell-out season of WEST SIDE STORY (State Theatre) and has also played Sarah Brown in a UK tour of GUYS AND DOLLS, Eliza Doolittle in an Australian tour of MY FAIR LADY and Cunegonde in a concert presentation of CANDIDE.
