Duncan Rock in intimate Don Giovanni

Duncan Rock as Don Giovanni with the HET Sinfonieorkest
We've been so excited about Duncan Rock's American stage debut as Don Giovanni in May with the Boston Lyric Opera that we almost overlooked his current run in the opera with the HET Sinfonieorkest in The Netherlands that's going on right now. Fortunately, there are still five performances remaining between January 18-25 and tickets are available online.

Director Eva Buchmann has made the story particularly intimate in this production placing the audience on the stage and around the orchestra.

We recently shared a little bit of trivia about Duncan Rock, which was that he started his musical career playing the bagpipes. The HET Sinfonieorkest adds that he played basketball and the bass.

This summer he'll be at Glyndebourne singing Tarquinius in Fiona Shaw's production of Britten's The Rape of Lucretia.
