She has also covered the roles of Papagena ('The magic flute') and the Dew Fairy ('Hänsel and Gretel'). In 2023, she was part of the Atelier Lyrique programme at the Verbier Festival in Switzerland. In 2024, she looks forward to performing the role of Hanna Glawari in 'The merry widow' at the RCM, as well as being a part of the Glyndebourne Festival as a performer.

Henna graduated with distinction from the Royal College of Music in 2023 with a master of performance and was awarded the Andrea Bocelli Foundation-Community Jameel Scholarship, along with mezzo-soprano Anastasia Koorn, which fully supports her studies at RCM's renowned Opera Studio. Henna is supported by the Midori Nishiura Scholarship and the Basil Coleman Opera Award as well as the Josephine Baker Trust and the Drake Calleja Trust.
