Raphael is a two-time finalist in the prestigious Herald Sun Aria Competition, a runnerup in the National Liederfest, a Green Room Award nominee, and was a Top 6 Finalist in the Inaugural Artists of Colour (AOC) Initiative Music Theatre Competition in 2020. Recent credits include: Il Re in The Sleeping Beauty (Victorian Opera), Rapunzel’s Prince/Lucinda in Into the Woods (Watch This) and Passarino/Phantom understudy in The Phantom of the Opera for Handa Opera on Sydney Harbour.
