A Night at the Opera

Saturday, 5 March 2016 - 7:30pm

Venue: 

Following the previous sell-out GLive Opera Classics concert, Jeremy Backhouse conducts Vivace Chorus and Brandenburg Sinfonia in another night of some of the most wonderful opera choruses and songs.

The soloists are Claire Seaton (soprano), Carris Jones (mezzo-soprano) and Peter Davoran (tenor).

Tenor Peter Davoren

Peter Davoren performs the wonderful Tenor solos.

Peter was awarded the Dr Ralph Kohn Scholarship to attend the Royal Academy of Music, London under the tutelage of the renowned tenor Neil Mackie and Mary Hill. During his time at RAM Peter gained plaudits for his recital singing as a member of the Academy Song Circle, performing at the Chelsea Lieder Festival, Oxford Lieder Festival and the Wigmore Hall. The Independent hailed him as ‘excellent’ and singing with ‘a warm, bel canto style.’ These performances led to a Lieder night in the Duke’s Hall with Dame Felicity Lott.

Peter performed frequently on the oratorio stage and quickly gained a reputation as ‘one to watch for the future’ after his performance as Evangelist in the RAM performance of Bach’s St John Passion, conducted by Edward Higginbottom. Peter’s experience in Oratorio has led to being a regular performer for the Monteverdi Choir with John Elliot Gardiner and made his BBC Proms debut as a soloist in the Monteverdi Vespers of 1610.

Operatically, Peter has performed the roles of Nemorino (L’elisir d’amore) LaCouff and Le Journaliste (Les mamelles des Tiresias) and Florville (Il Signor Bruschino) with the Dutch National Opera Academy, and has been a regular at Opera Holland Park performing as Song Vendor (Il Tabarro, 2015) Poisson (Adriana Lecouvreur, 2014) and Goro (Madama Butterfly, 2013)
