Introducing British Barihunk David Jones

Barihunk David Jones
British barihunk David Jones in new to us and came to our attention via Twitter. He will be performing "Unknowing" at Leys Recital Hall at Cambridge on October 17th with Teatime Opera. Directed by Matthew Monaghan, the staged piece uses music from Schumann’s Dichterliebe and Frauenliebe und -leben to explore the intense and violent relationship between two lovers.

Jones will be joined by soprano Christine Cunnold and pianist Richard Harker. Tickets are available online.

Jones studied at Oxford University and Trinity Laban and was prizewinner in the 2015 AESS Patricia Routledge English Song Competition. He enjoys a fruitful ongoing collaboration with Cantata Dramatica, with whom he has given the first performances of four substantial works, most recently Nick Bîcat’s Red Dragon, White Dragon.

Operatic roles have included Jesus in Jonathan Harvey's Passion and Resurrection  at the Voices of London Festival, Edward VIII in the premiere of Josh Spear's That Woman at the Tête-à-Tête Festival, Pritschitsch in Lehar's The Merry Widow with Opera Danube, Jamie in the world premiere of The Sleeper with the Welsh National Youth Opera and Ko-Ko in Gilbert & Sullivan's The Mikado with Co-Opera Co.
