The Festival’s opera repertoire this summer is perceptively reflected in Paul Nilon’s broad-ranging recital programme of ‘bel canto’, Mozart and Britten, but it also echoes his illustrious career on stage and in concert which has established him as one of the UKs most sought after lyric tenors. His interpretation of the title role of Idomeneo is seen now to be definitive, along with his domination of Britten’s operatic major roles. Audiences will remember Paul’s astounding performance in 2016 as Bajazet in the Festival’s production of Tamerlano, and he exemplifies a truly all-round artistry that inspires all around him and unfailingly attracts the widest praise from opera directors, colleagues and audiences alike.
