Aylin Bozok has been named Best Newcomer in the WhatsOnStage Opera Poll.
“If there is a surprise victor this year, it is the young Swiss-Turkish director Aylin Bozok whose shoestring production of Debussy’s Pelléas et Mélisande so impressed audiences last summer at the Arcola Theatre’s Grimeborn Festival. It was full of simply-realised ideas that brilliantly elucidated what for many is a difficult opera, and Bozok’s talent marks her out as a worthy winner of ‘Best Newcomer to the UK Operatic Scene’ and an exciting prospect for the future.”
We are thrilled for Aylin whose directorial work we started to support after her 2012 Grimeborn debut with Il Tabarro.
