An evening with Graham Clark
August 8, 2020
We are delighted that international opera singer Graham Clark has agreed to fit a visit to Clayhanger into his busy international schedule. He will talk about his life in opera from his early childhood in Lancashire to appearing in the most famous opera houses around the world including many seasons at the Bayreuth Festival and the New York Metropolitan Opera (the image above was from his portrayal of Mime in Wagner’s Ring for the Netherlands Opera in 1997). For those already interested in opera, or for those who have wondered what the fuss was all about, he will convey his passion for the medium together with recorded examples of significant roles he has sung. The evening provides the backdrop for the workshop the following morning in which he has agreed to coach a couple of emerging young singers.
The evening will include a light supper, included in the ticket price, and the opportunity to meet Graham.
