Toi toi toi to Alan Oke who appears in Berg’s Lulu at the Metropolitan Opera (5 November – 3 December 2015), performing the roles of Prince, Manservant and Marquis.
This begins an exciting season for Alan which includes The Marriage of Figaro (opens 18 February 2016) with Welsh National Opera, paired with the world première of Elena Langer’s Figaro Gets a Divorce (opens 21 February 2016).
Wondering if life after Figaro really was happily ever after, David Pountney has delved into the story and created the libretto to a classic tale, with a twist. ‘Langer and Pountney have created an affectionate sequel to Mozart’s classic, a testimony to human courage and resilience.’ (WNO website, 2015).
Next year Alan also returns to the Royal Opera House for La Fura dels Baus’s production of Enescu’s only opera, Oedipe, directed by Àlex Ollé. Based on the fabled story of Oedipus, this opera tells the dark sordid story of murder.
