Marie Angel was de Australische zangeres die een hele opera lang naakt over de scène struinde in “Rosa” van Louis Andriessen en Peter Greenaway. Eerst in een slavinnenpakje, nadien overgoten met zwarte inkt.
She also appeared in the Peter Greenaway film Prospero’s Books, as well as in the recording of Michael Nyman’s opera Facing Goya. In 2006 she was the author and performer of “(It ain’t over) Till the Fat Lady Sings”, a one woman show and a musical extravaganza, in which Marie Angel traces the story of her life from outback Australia to many of the world’s major opera houses, accompanied by an intimate soundtrack of the songs which have accompanied her through her life. Her musical journey stretches from Piaf to Puccini, The Beatles to Brahms via Duke Ellington and a host of operatic divas that she has made her own. “Other people’s songs have allowed me to sing what I have found too difficult to say,” is her explanation.
