Long time no blog...

Has it really been so long since I last sat down to write a blog? Staggered!

Well, what has happened in the last few months? I completed the run of Magic Flute shows for Welsh National Opera and we moved into our new home (almost finished the refurbishment – will it ever be completed..?) We were snowed-in briefly before Christmas and enjoyed a very white festive season.

My two little boys loved the snow, but it prevented me getting to London for an English National Opera audition. By a stroke of luck, however, the person I was auditioning for was also stuck (in Los Angeles) so the whole thing was postponed until the New Year.

This period in my diary was meant to be a quiet time that I could use to get to grips with the role of Rigoletto, my next big project, for Scottish Opera in the Spring. As always happens, though, several things have come in last minute and I now find myself revising Carmina Burana and the Mozart Requiem alongside new stuff for an opera-pops concert at the beginning of March.

I’ve also recently started teaching/coaching a local baritone who is hoping to sing his first Germont Pere in La Traviata for Somerset Opera this Summer. I find myself really enjoying these sessions and take great satisfaction from hearing and seeing the progress that is being made on a weekly basis.

So how is Rigoletto coming on? Well, he is well-formed and is being sung in at the moment. This role is truly at the pinnacle of the Verdi baritone repertoire and requires great stamina and lashings of careful vocal technique to pull off convincingly. I’m loving every minute that I sing it!

More anon…
