A reader in the UK has introduced us to Lithuanian barihunk Romanas Kudriašovas, who is a Young Artist at the London National Opera Studio. On November 28th, he'll be performing scenes from the Mozart/Da Ponte operas as part of the National Opera Studio residency at Opera North. The concert will be at the Howard Assembly Room at 7:30 PM.

On December 10th, he joins the great British soprano Susan Bullock for a candle-lit celebration of English song in St. Giles Cripplegate Church in London. The program will feature music from Vaughn Williams, Gurney, Quilter and Britten. Tickets are available online.
