This month, Andrew Staples embarks on an intensely busy five-week period of concert work taking him to three continents: Europe, Australasia and North America.
He appears first at the Vienna Musikverein in performances of Handel’s Saul on 14 and 15 March with Concentus Musicus Wien conducted by Nikolaus Harnoncourt. He then travels to Melbourne where he sings the title role in Berlioz’s La Damnation de Faust on 20 and 21 March with the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and Sir Andrew Davis. This is followed by performances of Evangelist in the St Matthew Passion on 26 and 27 March at the Oslo Konserthus with the Oslo Philharmonic Orchestra and Vassily Petrenko and he then travels on to the US for further performances on 1 and 4 April at Verizon Hall, Philadelphia with the Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin. Finally, Andrew returns to Europe for performances of Mahler’s Das Lied von der Erde on 10 and 11 April at the Berwaldhallen in Stockholm with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Daniel Harding.
