This summer, dramatic soprano Susan Bullock takes on the role of Brünnhilde in Acts 2 & 3 of Wagner's Die Walküre for the Manchester International Festival on July 15 under conductor Sir Mark Elder. She then makes her way to the BBC Proms Festival for August 13 performances of this year's first "Comedy Prom" hosted by Tim Minchin. The highlight will be the "Last Night of the Proms" on September 10 when she will sing the Immolation Scene from Wagner's Götterdämmerung, "Climb Every Mountain" from The Sound of Music and "You'll Never Walk Alone" from Carousel (both musicals are by Richard Rogers). The evening will end with her leading Arne's "Rule Britannia."

With the BBC coverage of the BBC Proms, singing isnt' the thing the soprano is most concerned about, “...everyone asks me now is ‘What are you going to wear?’ If I had a pound for every time that’s been said, I’d be a rich lady!” [Source]
