The Marriage of Figaro – Opera North
For the first part of 2015, I’ve been assisting director Jo Davies on a new production of the Marriage of Figaro for Opera North, and taking it on tour to Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester and Belfast.
The production went down well, with strong reviews:
[…] a Figaro of exceptional ensemble, rich in charm, humour and vitality: beautifully sung, sensitively staged. For pure enjoyment, what more can opera offer?
It also gave me a three-week rehearsal period to direct a full cover version of Figaro, which saw our cover Bradley Travis going on for Figaro in the second show of the run in Leeds – you can read about his experience here: www.operanorth.co.uk/blogs/635
