Amy Balales, Soprano
Amy is featured as “Lady Ella” in Patience.
Amy was “Giulia” in our previous season of The Gondoliers and played the role of “Julia” in the Australian premiere of Jonathan Dove’s contemporary opera Mansfield Park.
Amy began music at a young age, touring extensively as a developing artist and fostering a strong association with choral singing.
Studying at the Adelaide Elder Conservatorium of Music, she completed her undergrad as a flautist before transitioning to voice. She has since earned her Graduate Diploma in Voice Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium under the guidance of Barry Ryan. Amy currently studies with Stephen Yalouris exploring coloratura soprano.
Amy’s first G & S experience was as an orchestra member for the Gilbert and Sullivan Society of South Australia.
Her recent accolades include runner up at the Adelaide Eisteddfod in the Operatic Aria section and First Place in the Sydney Eisteddfod Duet section.

The Savoy Arts Company Incorporated has been producing shows since 1985, specialising in the operettas of William Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan. To better reflect its primary artistic objective, commencing from 2014, the company will be performing as Gilbert & Sullivan Opera Sydney. Our performing group has provided excellent training in all aspects of stagecraft for performers who have made a career in opera and musical theatre. The Ensemble style of our productions not only provides the chorus with experience in singing with an orchestra, but also provides ample opportunity to learn and develop skills in characterisation and stagecraft.
