chorus member David Newman as Orpheus, in Kentish Opera's 2009
production of Orpheus in the Underworld
Kentish Opera has
enjoyed a close association with ENO for many years and in 2011
shares its 60th Anniversary with ENO's 80th. ENO singers who
have performed principal roles with us include Paul Napier- Burrows,
Anne Welch, David Newman, Richard Roberts, Gary Coward, Antony
Rich, Fiona Canfield, Philip O'Brien and Paul Hodges.
We consider ourselves
most fortunate to have worked with David Parry, Mark Shanahan,
James Holmes and Stephen Harris and in addition, our dance director
is Terry John Bates. Terry's work with ENO includes Rusalka,
Konigskinder, Toussaint, and (with Jonathan Miller) Carmen,
La Traviata, The Marriage of Figaro and Don Giovanni.
It has been a great
pleasure working with singers and conductors from ENO and we
wish you all many more years of wonderful productions.
Artistic Director, Kentish Opera
