One of the best coloratura sopranos in the world, with an amazing and unique voice, Christina has recently returned to her home county, Suffolk, after a long residency at the State Opera in Prague.

Well known throughout the world of opera and classical music through her many performances and collaborations, Christina has a range and voice which lends itself to almost any type of music and The Spa will be introduced her to their audiences over the weekend of 12th and 13th November with very special ‘cameo’ guest appearances.
