Duncan Rock Debuts as Giovanni; Shirtless in Heggie Piece

Duncan Rock in Jake Heggie's “For a Look or a Touch”
Barihunk Duncan Rock had a busy couple of days in November. On November 18th, he was asked to step in at the last minute in the Welsh National Opera's production of Mozart's "Don Giovanni." The next night he opened at the King's Head Theatre in London in the critical role of Manfred in Jake Heggie's “For a Look or a Touch.”

Heggie's powerful chamber opera is the tale of two gay lovers, both prisoners in the concentration camps of Nazi Germany. The text is based on the journal of the late Manfred Lewin, interviews with his lover Gad Beck and other survivors who were featured in the film "Paragraph 175." Heggie has created a mesmerizing and haunting depiction of the loss and persecution of the gay victims of the Holocaust. We were fortunate enough to get these amazing pictures of Duncan Rock as Manfred. 

We've featured this before, but it's worth sharing again. Here is the amazingly talented Morgan Smith singing "Golden Years" from "For a Look or a Touch":
