An Evening with Sir Thomas Allen

Stephen Higgens piano

 

Sir Thomas Allen is an established star of the great opera houses of the world. At the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, where in 2011 he celebrated the 40th anniversary of his debut with the company, he has sung over 50 roles. The same year he also celebrated the 30th anniversary of his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, New York. He returns there in 2017/18 for his acclaimed portrayal of Baron Zeta (The Merry Widow). He is particularly renowned for his Billy Budd, Pelléas, Eugene Onegin, Ulisse and Beckmesser, as well as the great Mozart roles of Count Almaviva, Don Alfonso, Papageno, Guglielmo and, of course, Don Giovanni. Opera appearances in 2017 included Music Master (Ariadne auf Naxos) at Glyndebourne Festival Opera and Roc in The Exterminating Angel (Thomas Adés) at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden.

 

Join us for a very special evening with Sir Thomas Allen performing works from a recently recorded CD including composers such as Gershwin, Porter and Kern.
