Figaro trio
Christopher with Bo Skovhus and Marlis Petersen in Le Nozze di Figaro at LA Opera (2010)

Christopher has been singing professionally for about 35 years, after graduating from King’s College, Cambridge where he sang in the choir and read Economics and Music. He wasn’t very good at Economics.

Highlights have included singing Roderigo in Verdi’s Otello at Covent Garden under Carlos Kleiber, War Requiem in the Teatro Colon, Buenos Aires under Steuart Bedford, Britten’s Nocturne with the Philadelphia Orchestra under Oliver Knussen, the Evangelist in Bach’s St Matthew Passion for many years with The Bach Choir, Henze’s Voices with Knussen and the London Sinfonietta at the BBC Proms, and Monteverdi’s L’Incoronazione di Poppea for Los Angeles Opera.
