Marc-Antoine Charpentier: David et Jonathas (David

Marc-Antoine Charpentier: David et Jonathas (David


A rare opportunity to hear this dramatic 'biblical opera' first performed at the Collège Louis-le-Grand, Paris, in 1688. This work was so successful it had further performances in 1706, 1715 and 1741.

Acclaimed high tenor Daniel Auchincloss to sing the role of David.

Daniel is making a return visit to Leeds to sing the challenging haute-contre role of David in our production of Charpentier's David ed Jonathas.

Canadian Daniel studied at the University of Toronto and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama. Since then he has performed with many ensembles and orchestras including the Gabrieli Consort, Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, Orchestra, Boston Baroque, La Grande Écurie et la Chambre du Roy and the Salzburg Camerata, under conductors including Emmanuelle Haïm, Paul McCreesh, Stephen Cleobury, Gary Cooper, Diego Fasolis, Jean-Claude Malgoire, James Morgan, Sir Roger Norrington, Vassily Petrenko, Laurence Cummings, Christian Curnyn and Stephen Devine.
