Sir Thomas Allen to become RCM artist in residence2:33, 28th November 2017
The Royal College of Music (RCM) has announced that baritone Sir Thomas Allen will be working with students over the coming years as artist in residence.
As part of an ongoing relationship with the conservatoire’s Vocal Faculty and International Opera School, Sir Thomas Allen will direct Mozart’s Le nozze di Figaro in the autumn of 2018.
The RCM alumnus will work with members of the opera cohort on all aspects of role preparation with particular reference to the Da Ponte operas, taking masterclasses on a regular basis. He will also lead related song projects and collaborative initiatives.
Michael Rosewell, RCM director of opera, comments: ‘It is an enormous pleasure to be working on a production with him in the intimate setting of the Britten Theatre again, and I relish the prospect of Tom sharing his unique insights, gained from performing Mozart roles in the world’s greatest opera houses with the RCM’s outstanding ensemble of vocal talent.’
