What a great year 2013 was. Operas in Iford, Aix en Provence, Innsbruck, Antwerp, Strasbourg, Leeds, and Luxembourg, and concerts in Malta, Spain, Cadogan Hall, Norwich Cathedral, St. Paul's Cathedral and then to finish it all off my Wigmore Hall debut with The King's Consort in December. Looking forward to 2014 which sees my first bit of work with ENO, as well as a role at the Gottingen Festival, plus concerts in London and Norwich.
It's been wonderful to finally perform Mendonça's "The House Taken Over" to three great audiences in Antwerp. Next week we perform it again in Strasbourg, and in the mean time I am up in Leeds with Opera North working on Britten's "A Midsummer Night's Dream"
After a wonderful 3 weeks at the Festival d'Aix-en-Provence, I'm now in Innsbruck and rehearsals are going well for Dido and Aeneas, and Venus and Adonis. Can't wait for the outdoor performances on 14th, 17th and 19th August. Let's hope it doesnt rain!
I've been asked at the last minute to step into the role of Marchese D'Obigny for Iford Arts new production of Verdi's La Traviata. Details can be found on my "Performances" page.
I've been invited at the very last minute to perform Elgar's Dream of Gerontius in Sherborne Abbey on February 6th 2013. Do come along!
