English Touring Opera: In Conversation with Themba Mvula

English Touring Opera are starting a live series of conversations with the company's Artistic Director, James Conway. Each week James will be joined by a special guest and ETO Associate Artist Bradley Travis, and they hope listeners can join us and be part of the conversation.

On Wed 17 Jun at 5pm (duration: 40 mins), James Conway will be joined by baritone, Themba Mvula. Themba was scheduled to perform in our Autumn 2020 season, covering the lead role of Eddie in Greek (Mark-Antony Turnage) as well as the role of Mel in The Knot Garden (Michael Tippett). Among his achievements he's a winner of the Gordon Clinton English Song Prize, was awarded second prize in the Bologna International Vocal Competition, and was a finalist in the inaugural By Voice Alone competition.

To watch the live conversation, simply reply to this email and let us know, we'll then send you a link for you to use on the day. You can send your questions in advance to admin@englishtouringopera.org.uk or ask them as the conversation happens.
