Soprano Erika Mädi Jones has been selected for a leading role in a production of Richard Wagner’s Tannhäuser at the Longborough Festival Opera in June 2016.

Longborough Festival Opera (LFO) is a country house opera company located in the Cotswolds and specialising in Wagner’s works. In 2013 the LFO received critical acclaim for its production of Wagner’s epic four-part opera cycle, The Ring of The Nibelung.

For this production Erika takes the role of Elisabeth, the leading female role in Tannhäuser. This marks another success for the Trinity Laban alumnus after she performed as a finalist in the Wagner Society Singing Competition 2015 and became a Les Azuriales Young Artist in the same year.

Graduating with a distinction in her MMus and Postgraduate Artist Diploma, Erika benefited from the world-class musical training Trinity Laban offers all its students, as well as comprehensive financial support in the form of numerous scholarships and bursaries.
