Lecturer and curator of the acclaimed Stratton Estate, Stephen R. Clarke, offers a fascinating presentation on the evolution of the English tenor’s singing style. Drawing on one of the world’s most expansive collections of rare recordings, he will use excerpts from operas in the COC’s season to illustrate the singing styles of yesteryear’s English tenors, including Edward Lloyd (the first Gerontius), Gervase Elwes (the creator of On Wenlock Edge) and Walter Widdop (the only English tenor star of the famed Bayreuth Festival before Jon Vickers).
This concert is part of the Canadian Opera Company’s Free Concert Series in the Richard Bradshaw Amphitheatre. The series provides a unique opportunity to experience diverse artistic programming in what has become one of Toronto’s most exciting cultural hubs. All performances are FREE to the public.
