Had a great time working with the wonderful Jervaulx Singers rehearsing in the beautiful Ayriel Studios in the North Yorkshire dales. Excited for the concert next Saturday at 7:30 in St James' Church, Weatherby featuring the Parry Songs of Farewell and Richard Rodney Bennet's haunting Farewell to Arms.
I am delighted to be returning to Wexford in the Autumn for my principal debut at Wexford Festival Opera, playing King Fridolph in Alma Deutscher's Cinderella. It's a beautiful retelling of the story and I can't wait to get started. Performance dates are October 26th, 29th, 31st and November 5th.
This summer I'll be busy with Opera Holland Park for their 2022 season, joining the chorus for their double bill of Puccini's Le Villi and in the principal cast of Delius' Manon le Rouge. I'll also be playing Bob Beckett in their production of HMS Pinafore later in the season.
Dates for the Puccini/Delius: July 21st, 23rd, 27th, 29th, 31st; August 2nd, 4th, 6th.
Dates for HMS Pinafore: August 9th-13th.
It's back to Bergen in December for two projects with Edward Gardner and the Edvard Grieg Kor. Mahler 2 on the 1st and 2nd, and then Grieg 4 Salmer and Parry Songs of Farewell with Roderick Williams on the 7th. Particularly pleased to be reprising the Mahler as it was the very first piece I performed in this beautiful city.
