This soprano was born in Stoke-on-Trent, Staffordshire, England. She spent six years at the Royal Academy of Music, completing the performer's and advanced courses. She joined the D'Oyly Carte Opera Company as principal soprano in September 1980. She has nearly made a career out of the part of Christine in The Phantom Of The Opera and had three long running engagements in the role before assuming Christine at Her Majesty's Theatre, London. As a result, it's claimed that she's played the role of Christine more than any other actress in the world.
