Runaway Diva

Antoinette Halloran, the celebrated soprano, takes audiences on a captivating journey of self-discovery and artistic reinvention in her spellbinding show, "Runaway Diva." Departing from the traditional confines of opera, Halloran's performance is a bold exploration of music theatre and jazz, reflecting her own personal evolution and the pursuit of new creative horizons.


Through a blend of heartfelt storytelling, humor, and soul-stirring melodies, Halloran shares her own experience of breaking free from the opera world's constraints to explore the realms of music theatre and jazz. With each note she sings and each tale she weaves, she invites the audience into her world, where laughter mingles with tears, and vulnerability becomes strength.


"Runaway Diva" is more than just a performance; it's a deeply personal journey of embracing change and reinvention. Her magnetic stage presence and genuine charisma draw audiences into her narrative, where moments of levity are punctuated by poignant reflections on love, loss, and the pursuit of one's true passion. 


Joining her at the piano is James Egglestone, her life partner and colleague. They will perform songs by Puccini, Strauss, Lehar, Sondheim, Lehrer, Weill, Rodgers and Hammerstein, and of course, Cole Porter.
