News & Plans
These are strange days and who knows when theatres and concert halls will re-open. As the world headed into lockdown, I was rehearsing Alberich with the Vienna Staatsoper but their Ring cycle was sadly cancelled. Inevitable further cancellations happened in Madrid and Budapest and so now I am happily at home for some wonderfully valuable time with my family and crazy cats.
Hopefully, this Autumn I will be performing in Oslo with a debut as Joseph De Rocher in Jake Heggie’s Dead Man Walking, followed by performances of Fin de Partie in Valencia and at the Proms. Looking further ahead, there will be (pandemic allowing) Golaud in Geneva and Enescu’s Oedipe with the Komische Oper in Berlin.
In these unsettled times it is perhaps better not to look too far ahead, but I can’t help but be excited about some of the plans in the pipeline next year and beyond. Fingers and toes firmly crossed.
Stay safe and best wishes, Leigh.
