Richard is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Music’s Opera Course and is now supported by Opera Prelude. Richard returns to English Touring Opera next Spring as Chevalier Belfiore in Rossini’s Il viaggio a Reims, having previously sung the role of Ferrando in Mozart’s Così fan tutte, evangelised in their productions of Bach’s St. Matthew and St. John Passions, and performed a staged production of Britten’s John Donne Sonnets. He has also performed as a puppeteer and singer in the children’s opera film The Firebird
earlier this year and in a dystopian staging of madrigals by Josquin des Prez, both for ETO at Home.
Richard originally studied Chemical Engineering at The University of Manchester, where he completed a PhD in the field of crystallisation.
