Beyond the Stage.

Beyond the Stage is the debut album for Soprano, Fiona Jopson and Pianist, Paul Fitzsimon to bring the works of Puccini, Verdi, Massenet and Austrian Composer Joseph Marx to life.

This project started as an idea in 2021 that became reality in 2022. During the planning and creative process it became clear there was a greater reason for this project - to document the vast amounts of repertoire prepared over the last 6 years. Especially the repertoire during the 18/19 and 19/20 seasons at the Wiener Staatsoper, as well as future repertoire/role plans.

After many delays, taking time to recover from the early stages of burn out and adrenal fatigue Beyond the Stage has finally become a reality!

Thank you to the Australian Cultural Fund for their assistance in running the Beyond the Stage campaign and to all the amazing people who contributed to it, bringing this dream into reality!


This project would also not have been possible without the support of the Melba Opera Trust through their Alumni Grant Program. I am so grateful for your continued support over the years as well as through the John and Elizabeth Wright-Smith Alumni Grant.

What a journey it has been and I am eager to see what the future has in store!
