The first time I sang in a production of Hoffmann was 2007 in Vienna where I played the four servants. It was a reductive, bizarre, but very enchanting production. I fell in love with the show at that point because it felt like a dream from which I did not want to awake; especially the last act with its gently rocking barcarolle. It’s not an easy show to put on because it’s a big cast and finding someone who can sing the title role can be a struggle, but it’s one of my favourites and I would hope to hear it for the rest of my life.

Tenor Stephen Costello is currently starring as Greenhorn in our production of Moby-Dick
on the War Memorial stage. Earlier this month he answered a few questions for stephencostellotenor.com
ahead of opening night. The San Jose Mercury News
raves that as Greenhorn, the novice seaman "who evolves into the spitting image of Melville's able Ishmael," Stephen Costello "rapturously" sings his soliloquy.
