Under her Croatian family name Radmilovic, Kate began her career in Opera and Operetta following a training at the Royal Northern College of Music where she won the Elizabeth Harwood Best Singer of the Year Award and a Peter Moores scholarship to then go and study at the Zurich International Opera Studio. Kate subsequently took on house repertoire contracts in Germany and Switzerland as a leading Lyric soprano. She won the Public performance Prize at the Robert Stolz Operetta competition in Hamburg, and second place at the Vissi d’arte Opera competition in Eboli and in 2008 she returned to the UK to play Carlotta in Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty's, West End. Kate was then part of the critically acclaimed Ring Cycle at Longborough Festival Opera playing Freia and returning later in 2012 to cover Bruennhilde in Siegfried.
