The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama (RWCMD) has appointed John Fisher as the first artistic director of its David Seligman Opera School.
Fisher is assistant general manager at the Metropolitan Opera in New York. He has previously been the Hodge International Chair in Opera at RWCMD.
He said: ‘Over these last years, the profile and reputation of the college in general, and the vocal/opera department in particular, have soared, making it without doubt now one of the foremost go-to places for advanced training in voice and opera in the world.
