Royal Academy Opera


Today saw the beginning of term at the Royal Academy of Music; it is exciting to be back in the building this year as the Lucille Graham Opera Fellow.  This post will see a mixture of répétiteur commitments (for the termly opera scenes and for the three main productions this year: Mozart’s Così Fan Tutte, Peter Maxwell Davies’ newly commissioned Kommilitonen!, and Kurt Weill’s Threepenny Opera), along with some coaching of the singers, some recitative playing, some chorusmastering, and all the other varied tasks that get thrown in the direction of the music staff in any opera company!
