In the 2023/24 season she makes her debut at the Royal Opera House's Linbury Theatre singing the lead role in George Benjamin's Picture a Day Like This, and her house and role debut as the Fox in Janáček's The Cunning Little Vixen at the Canadian Opera Company.

Already a celebrated recitalist, her many appearances include a debut recital tour in the U.S. and Canada, including Carnegie Hall, and four recitals at Wigmore Hall, with Kunal Lahiry, Sean Shibe, Graham Johnson and Sir András Schiff.
