Special Event: Masterclass with Sir Thomas Allen
We are delighted to welcome Sir Thomas Allen to the Pleasance Theatre for a masterclass in stagecraft with our Young Artists from Don Giovanni.
Sir Thomas Allen is an established star of the great opera houses of the world. He has sung over fifty roles at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden; in 2012 he celebrated his 40th anniversary of his debut with the company. An acclaimed recitalist, he is equally renowned on the concert platform and has appeared with the world’s great orchestras and conductors. He is Chancellor of Durham University. His many honours include the title of Bayerischer Kammersänger awarded by the Bayerische Staatsoper. In the New Year’s Honours of 1989 he was created a Commander of the British Empire and in the 1999 Queen’s Birthday Honours he was made a Knight Bachelor. Among his proudest achievements is having a Channel Tunnel locomotive named after him; and most recently, being awarded the Queen’s Medal for Music 2013.
Join us for a very special afternoon to watch Sir Thomas work with our Don Giovanni chorus and understudies in a rare opportunity to catch a glimpse of the creative process of learning a role.
