Tina Ellen Lee is a singer, actress and producer and currently artistic director of Opera Circus, an experimental opera/music theatre company. She is a director with Robert Golden Pictures Ltd., and a founder and director of the web company Objective Cinema. She is a member of the International Women's Forum and a fellow of the Royal Society of Arts. She has performed in concerts, festival operas, fringe theatre, television commercials and feature films and as a voice over artist. As a performer and producer Ms. Lee toured all over the world with Opera Circus in several of the company's productions and has produced all of their work. Her work with Nigel Osborne has led her to establish partnerships with other arts organisations and NGO's in Serbia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Austria and the Netherlands both for the creation of new work and to continue to explore the use of the arts and culture to encourage inter cultural and ethnic understanding. In particular she supports the work of the youth theatre company FETUS and the Youth Theatre in Srebrenica. Opera Circus was based in London for fifteen years, which has led to a number of successful community projects in the region, most recently, the Youth Cultural Exchange Project Simply Human between Bridport and Srebrenica as part of the EU Cultural Project Wake Up.
I have been in theatre for a while. I write, direct, do the set-up. I manage the lights for my plays and I teach my actors how to be at ease on stage. Lately, I have been putting everything in my car and I have been driving miles and miles just to bring my stories to those who want to hear them; and the language of my stories is not always the same as the one of those who listen. But that is fine for me, because I hate barriers, limits and boundaries. One of the quote I am most proud of says:
"BE CAREFUL NOT TO STOP PEOPLE OR YOU WILL END UP STOPPING STORIES TOO'"
