“La dernière Sarabande – ou l’obsolescence programmée” with Juliette Rahon&Co

Livestreamed Premiere on the 25th of November in Kunstkraftwerk Leipzig

it is still possible to see this wonderful, engaged and poetical show with Juliette Rahon & Co. You will hear music by J.S. Bach and see dancers and musicians interact, thematising climate change and the issues of our (not too perfect) world. I had a wonderful time working on this project which is very close to my heart.

Le Petit Prince

Dessine moi un mouton… We’ve been busy rehearsing, recording and filming this show at Drapers Hall a few weeks ago. I was glad to sing the role of the little prince in this new short opera by Nicholas Jackson. The team was fantastic with Lily Dyble as stage director, Bradley Wood as musical director, Michael Bell (a colleague of mine at the RCM Opera studio), Matthew Freeman and his daughter Evelyn. All with social distancing, I am so happy that this could take place before the official “second lockdown”. Reserve tickets here for November 19th!

(free with possible donation, all funds raised are going to the RCMs hardship fund)
