Australian born and now based in London, Anna has established an international career spanning opera, theatre, concert, and film.  Anna was chosen by Andrew Lloyd Webber to create the role of Christine Daaé in the Australian production of Love Never Dies.  For this performance Anna was nominated for Sydney Theatre and Green Room Awards and the production was filmed and released in cinemas internationally by Universal Pictures.
