I performed my Lanza show at the Bridewell Theatre in August as part of the Opera in the City Festival. We received a lovely response and I thoroughly enjoyed relaunching the show. I rewrote sections of it, extending the role of the nurse into a speaking role. The very talented Julie Rose Smith played the role, well multiple roles really, with aplomb. I feel that this added a huge amount to the show and in fact I am keen to extend this further in the future. You can read a lovely review from Music Theatre Review.
We got the final show filmed so I will add the video footage soon.
Other shows this summer included a great show in Norway where I sang opera favourites and music theatre numbers with Craig Price, Lisa Stokke , Christian Ingbrigtsen and Yulia Naidenko. I also sang at a Victoria and Albert Museum private viewing for the great and the good as well as a number of other events and parties.
A few other events shaping up for the autumn and a small concert tour in my wife’s homeland, Skåne, Sweden over Chrstmas and New year.
