He served his performing apprenticeship at the Royal Shakespeare Company and Glyndebourne. He has been associated with many new music projects including The Electrification of the Soviet Union by Nigel Osbourne and Birtwistle’s The Second Mrs Kong for Glyndebourne Festival Opera, and Berio’s Un Re in Ascolto and Birtwistle’s Gawain for the Royal Opera House.
