I wish you all a happy and safe new year tonight! To everyone in Germany, enjoy setting off your fireworks, to you Australians, enjoy watching the proper authorities setting off fireworks for you.

So far, Theater Augsburg's Hänsel und Gretel has been running to very enthusiastic audiences and kids and I have also jumped in another well-received production in the Kurhaus Bad Aibling.

In a few weeks I take part in the Theater Augsburg's 15th Opera Ball - Moulin Rouge, which is always a great spectacle.

This is very late as I have been too busy to update my website, but I have also recently given a personal interview for the Augsburger Allgemeine earlier this month. If you haven't read it yet, you can do so here.

Once again, happy new year and see you on the other side!

The witch attempts to seduce Hänsel. The witch tries food. The witch fattening up Gretel.

Hänsel und Gretel premiered on Saturday to great reviews. Here is one from the Augsburger Allgemeine.

The next performance is tonight at 7:30pm.

There is some changes to the schedule. On the 30th November, my understudy Sally du Randt will be performing, so I will naturally not be performing that evening anymore. There is also new performance on the 18th December.

Right now I am learning Wozzeck, La Finta Giardiniera and eventually Macbeth as well, premiering next year.

There is also a new blog entry about my latest role entitled Meditations on the Witch. Read it if you are interested in the process of creating this role!

It's been about a month since the start of the Theater Augsburg's new season and this year I've been a little bit slow to add some news to this website!

The first role for this season will be as the witch (Knusperhexe) in Theater Augsburg's production of Hänsel und Gretel, which will open on the 25th October. On the 19th October, I will be singing another Mozart Coronation Mass at Maria-Hilf Kirche in Stadtbergen, Augsburg.

Details on the performances page as per usual.

I have also written my latest blog entry about singing. Being a technology loving person, this one documents my experiences with finally switching from paper music to digital sheet music. The blog is entitled Going digital with sheet music. Check it out!

11 August 2014

So my big recital is over, but the music isn't! I will be singing a couple of songs as part of the 10am church service this Sunday at St Michael's Church in Melbourne. Details on the performances page.

4 August 2014

It's theater holidays but I still have lots going on. Less than a week now until my cMelbourne concert with Stefan Cassomenos.

In the lead-up to the concert, I will talking with Julie Houghton from 3MBS FM (103.5FM) at 11.10am AEST (UTC +10) this Saturday. You can tune in live on the internet on the 3mbs website or, of course, on radio.

Performances for next season at Theater Augsburg are also up on the performances page, but before the season starts I am also singing three gala concerts for Hörmann Reise at the Parktheater im Kurhaus Göggingen from the 4th-6th September.

More news and concert information will be announced next week. Stay tuned!

My Fair Lady has opened to some lovely reviews:

It will run for 21 performances and end on Thursday 24th July, 2014.

That doesn't mean there is nothing else happening! I will be singing the tenor solos in W.A. Mozart's Krönungsmesse Mass (No. 15 in C major, KV 317) at St. Peter und Paul Church in Augsburg-Oberhausen. Entry is free!

21 May 2014

This Saturday is the Theater Augsburg open day (Es grünt so grün ...) for the upcoming open-air season of My Fair Lady.

Download Theater Augsburg Season Booklet. The Theater Augsburg Season booklet for 2014/2015 has been released about two weeks ago.

My roles for next season include:

  • Knusperhexe in Hänsel und Gretel
  • Andres in Wozzeck
  • Belfiore in Mozart's la Finta Giardiniera
  • Malcolm in Verdi's Macbeth.

It should be a very exciting season for me!
