Nobby Clark photographs

They’re in! I have just received a shipment of beautiful photographs taken by the legendary photographer Nobby Clark. These were taken in 2010 of the Theatre Royal Bath’s UK tour of Terrence McNally’s Tony Award-winning play Master Class, directed by Chichester Theatre’s Jonathan Church, in which I played Sharon Graham opposite the Maria Callas of Stephanie Beacham.MASTER CLASS by McNally ; Stephanie Beacham as Maria Callas Robyn North as Sophie ; Pamela Hay as Sharon ; Christopher Jacobsen as Tony ; David Harvey as Manny ; Robert Dowton as Stagehand ; Written by Terrence McNally ; Directed by Jonathan Church ; Designed by Ruari Murchison ; Musical Direction by David Harvey ; Lighting Designer Tim Mitchell ; at Theatre Royal, Bath, UK ; November 2010 ; Credit: Nobby Clark / ArenPAL ; www.arenapal.com

City of Oxford Orchestra

I had a great time singing the Viennese New Year concert with the City of Oxford Orchestra on Saturday. Under the brilliant conducting of Stephen Bell, and in the beautiful acoustics of the venerable Sheldonian Theatre, the orchestra sounded marvellous. What a privilege to be part of such an esteemed group, especially in this their 50th anniversary year. Here I am about to go on for Johann Strauss’s “Csardas” from Die Fledermaus.image
