'Always Auditioning' | Opera, OCD and Overspending with Soprano, BRIA LOVEGROVE The Invisible Cabaret Podcast: Mental Health & Creativity

Welcome to 2021, things are about to get fiery… Ferrero Rochelle and Rosie Verbose are delighted to start off the New Year with a bang by chatting to Bria Lovegrove (née Kelly), a soprano whose Masters dissertation was on the impact of tragedy in opera. She shares her experience of how training as a professional classical singer affected her mental health, visiting areas such as perfectionism, self-medicating, the impact on her bank balance and the "grin and bear it" culture she experienced at conservatoire. Do the classical arts glamorise mental ill health? Find Bria on Facebook: https://m.facebook.com/briakellysoprano/ CW: anxiety, depression, alcohol as coping mechanism, perfectionism & OCD. Plus a few F bombs, but in our defence, we were pretty PO'ed. Some useful links for mental health issues mentioned in this episode: Help Musicians UK; help with substance abuse here and here; OCD-UK. *** What are you grateful for?
