Fleur Snow hails from Ceredigion in West Wales and is a stage director, accompanist and librettist. She has a First from Oxford in English and French Literature and was organ scholar at Brasenose College. This passion for words and music led to an MA in Opera Directing at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. Highlights of this experience were masterclasses with Katie Mitchell, Richard Jones and Deborah Warner, and a strong connection to Welsh National Opera with workshops from Carlo Rizzi, Sir David Pountney and Aidan Lang.
As director, recent credits include Coram Boy, Dido & Aeneas and Mozart in Music & Letters. As assistant director, Fleur has worked under Martin Constantine (Cosí Fan Tutte and L’Heure Espagnole), Sarah Crisp (The Medium) and Jem Treays (Cat & Dog). As a librettist, Fleur has adapted Jamila Gavin’s Coram Boy and is now writing a Welsh language children’s opera as part of the OPRA Cymru Gweithfeydd series.
Three new productions by Fleur will be streamed online during the RWCMD Atmospheres Festival in May. Two are opera premieres; Coram Boy by Jasper Dommett and The Y Knot, a children’s opera by Julia Plaut. The third is Fleur’s own adaption of Julius Caesar, filmed solely over Zoom in a lockdown world.
Later this summer, Fleur will be working as Associate Director with Martin Constantine on The Turn of the Screw for the RWCMD Summer Opera.
