Buy Tickets Sir John Tomlinson, Bass - Michelangelo in Song

Part of Ripon International Festival

Holy Trinity Church Ripon

with David Owen Norris - piano

“one of the finest singing actors on the opera scene”  
“magnificent voice and stage charisma”

Sir John Tomlinson, the great Wagnerian bass, famous for his Wotan in the Ring Cycle at Covent Garden and Bayreuth, and for roles in Vienna, New York, Berlin, Paris etc. gives a dramatic performance of Michelangelo’s poems set to music by Britten, Hugo Wolf  (his heart-wrenching lied) and Shostakovich.

Costumed and semi-staged, Sir John inhabits the persona of Michelangelo and delivers an extraordinary performance of sublime intensity and beauty.

A rare opportunity to hear one of the world’s great voices in an intimate setting. The church’s £1m refurbishment has created an elegant, comfortable interior with all facilities.
