Well not quite, but while charming his way around the Scottish outpost, he popped in on the Dunedin Male Voice Choir. Immediately they claimed him as an Honorary Member and proclaimed him their new Welsh pronunciation coach. As if this weren't enough, he has also visited the albatrosses and seals, offered a game for Zingarei-Richmond, had two offers of marriage and six dinner invitations. Such capacity for life! As Stuart Coats, our NBR New Zealand Opera Tour Manager, says: “He’s that kind of chap”.
Next, he will be in Christchurch (13th June) then Wellington (17th June) and then on to Auckland. For those fortunate enough to possess one of a very limited number of tickets (available at a mere $45 from Julie Byrd at the NBR New Zealand Opera offices, phone 09 379 4068), there will be a Meet and Greet at the home of Colin and Maree Reynolds, Viaduct Basin on the 19th June. The Auckland concert will be the following evening.
Don’t miss this one (and probably final) and only concert to hear this great performer.
