Change of cast for Apollo et Hyacinthus
We regret that John Mark Ainsley has had to withdraw from the role of Oebalus in our forthcoming production of Apollo and Hyacinthus, but are pleased to announce that he will be replaced by tenor Benjamin Hulett. Benjamin has appeared at the Royal Opera House, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Hamburgische Staatsoper, Bayerische Staatsoper, Deutsche Staatsoper, Theater an der Wien, Opera North, the Edinburgh and Baden-Baden festivals and the BBC Proms. Future engagements include Tom Rakewell (The Rake’s Progress) in Luxembourg and France, a return to Glyndebourne for Hipermestra, and concert work with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra and at the Vienna Musikverein. He made his Classical Opera début at Wigmore Hall in 2013, and has subsequently appeared with the company at the Haydn Festival in Eisenstadt, Austria and as Agenore on our acclaimed recording of Mozart’s Il re pastore.
