Soprano Nadine Benjamin has had a busy 2018, what with two major roles at English National Opera (ENO) where she is currently a Harewood Artist, and the release of her debut recital CD. Now, with her own company, Everybody Can! Opera, Benjamin is producing Puccini's Tosca at St James's Church, Piccadilly on Friday 18 January 2019. The production is directed by Rebecca Louise Dale, conducted by William Conway, with Benjamin in the title role, Borja Gómez-Ferrer as Cavaradossi and David Durham as Scarpia.

Besides being a celebration of Benjamin's own talents as an operatic soprano, the event is an extention of her work mentoring with Everybody Can. The production aims to create a piece that allows everyone involved to walk away with something of value to them, as well as giving work experience opportunity to people who wouldn't normally get the chance to be cast in or work in their chosen area of this profession.

Opportunities are provided for people to shadow some of the team and gain work experience thereby giving them an opportunity to learn skills that they may use further in their careers or enable them to think differently about what they are currently doing. The Everybody Can team is made up of semi-professional and professional individuals from all walks of life with different life experiences.
