My time in Dublin singing Don Giovanni and Heresy back to back was really challenging – I don’t think it’s possible to work on two more disparate shows at the same time. Though intense, Dublin and the shows I worked on there were thrilling, energising and lots and lots of fun.
The icing on the cake is that the performances were really well received too.

voices in ‘Heresy’ are nothing less than sublime.
great support from rising young Irish soprano Daire Halpin as amongst others an authoritative Elizabeth 1st
Soprano Daire Halpin shows great versatility in parts ranging from the graceful Sophia, goddess of wisdom, to a cheeky courtier whom Fraad dresses in a naughty maid costume.
First of all, Daire Halpin: Dublin’s audiences have had recently the chance to appreciate the lovely voice and technical prowess of this soprano in Opera Theatre Company’ Don Giovanni.
