We welcome Michael to the Society this year for his first principal role in a Gilbert & Sullivan opera. Michael joins us from Kilmarnock, where he was educated, before attending Strathclyde University. His love of opera has led him to playing many principal parts over the last few years including the title role in Robert Devereux for Opera Seria in the Studio Theatre at the RNCM in Manchester in 2013, and with the same company in 2014, Leicester in Maria Stuarda. Back in Scotland he sang the part of Tamino in The Magic Flute with Aria Alba and Ferrando in Così fan tutte with Voicearc, both in Edinburgh.
2013 was a busy year for Michael as he also toured NW England with Opera Seria as Don Ottavio in Don Giovanni, playing the same role with Hashtag Opera in Edinburgh and then Delil with the same company in Verdi’s Giovanna D’Arco in 2015. He joined Opera Camerata in the same year, when he sang the part of Hoffman in The Tales of Hoffman at the Church Hill Theatre. Most recently he sang the part of Rinuccio in Gianni Schicchi with Opera Camerata alongside Susanne Horsburgh.
