Revisiting LILAV

After a break of a couple of years, it was a great pleasure to work with the cast of Lessons In Love And Violence again, under the baton of Sir George himself, on a piece that is very close to my heart. Having done about 40 fully-staged performances of Lessons, from Covent Garden to the Liceu in Barcelona, it was a challenge to be doing four concert performances of the piece, but a luxury to be with the wonderful Mahler Chamber Orchestra, for whom Written On Skin, George’s previous opera, was originally composed. Performances took place in Dortmund, Cologne, Essen and Brussels and were very well received!

The Indian Queen

Next week I will be travelling to Antwerp to perform Henry Purcell’s The Indian Queen, under the directorship of Guy Cassiers, with Emmanuelle Haïm conducting.

Here is a trailer from Opera Ballet Vlaanderen:

Music for Good Friday: Bach Mass in B Minor – Cancelled

According to The Ulster Orchestra’s website “[d]ue to the ongoing public health situation, Waterfront Hall and Ulster Hall are now closed until 17 April at least and therefore there will sadly be no Ulster Orchestra concerts for this period.

Like you, we were looking forward to this great concert. However, we unfortunately won’t be in a position to reschedule and therefore it is with regret that this performance is cancelled.”
