Merchant of Venice with WNO

This Autumn I shall mostly be singing Salerio in the Merchant of Venice at WNO. I'm having a great time with it. It feels like a lemon sorbet after all the Wagner and Verdi I've been doing the last few years. See HERE for more info.

Friday Night is Music Night!

What seriously lovely people. I had a great night, kinda mixed in with my 25th wedding anniversary but that's the rub of the green. It's always wonderful to sing with such wonderful conductors and with the BBC Concert Orchestra. A real treat.

My big head then the lovely Ilona Domnich and Bonaventura Bottone!

A French Production

Sasha took this at the big top G moment at the end of Nulla silenzio. The (excellent) conductor, Toby Purser, is having a proverbial cup of tea waiting for me to get to the cadence. Thanks Toby! Sasha always puts together the best gigs, always in the nicest surroundings.

Elijah with maestro mate John Andrews

So John calls me up to go through the score with me and I'm singing it through with him and it all feels absurdly easy. Ah yes I realise, I've been singing this little ditty for nearly 30 years.... A good night with the Harpenden Choral Society.
