Naomi Felix

Naomi Felix is a contralto who was born in London, but grew up and was educated in Guyana, South America, where she began singing at the early age of 10 in her local church and school choirs.

She returned to London to continue her vocal studies at Trinity College of Music, later touring the U.K. and Japan with the musical Carmen Jones under the direction of Simon Callow. Her many performances have taken her around the world including the USA, Holland and Italy, where she resided for a year.

Other performances include Verdi’s REQUIEM; Elgar’s CORONATION ODE – No 6, Seven Last Words by Joseph Haydn and Joel Thompson with the English National Opera Chorus, Fenena in Verdi’s NABUCCO for Uncovered Opera, 24 Italian Songs and Arias (BRIAN LOBEL); The Trojan Women (HERA); Porgy and Bess in Lisbon, Portugal; and Falstaff (PEGASUS OPERA).

Naomi’s repertoire includes  Amour, viens aider ma faiblesse Saint-Saens (SAMSON ET DALILA); Weiche, Wotan weiche, Wagner’s (DAS RHEINGOLD); Lullaby, the Mother’s aria in Menotti’s (THE CONSUL); O del mio dolce ardor from Gluck’s (PARIDE ED ELENA); and Can’t Help Lovin’ Dat Man from Kern’s (SHOWBOAT).

Naomi is looking forward to performing 24 Italian Songs and Arias in April 2024, as part of Ghent International Festival at Ghent Opera.

One of the last songs performed by Naomi Felix was extraordinarily beautiful.

Particular highlights included Naomi Felix’s poignant ‘O Del Mio Dolce Ardor’.

A Younger Theatre Review of 24 Italian Songs and Arias by Aidan Bracebridge

Naomi Felix sits beside Lobel at the piano, silently turning pages as he plays. Finally she gets her chance to speak. After a hurtful rejection and illness, she steered clear of music, only to be nudged back into it by performing in a scratch of this show a few years ago. When I think of this play in the future, I will think of her.
