Based in Luxembourg, but lyrically nomadic . With eclectic tastes, and always happy with the surprises that opera continues to offer him : other soloists, another conductor, another director, just a new one, etc. Happy also to share what he lived here, there or elsewhere.

Reviewer

David is a career performing arts practitioner based in Melbourne, Australia. He aspires to transcendence in his artistic endeavours, and when it comes to opera, he has very little patience with those in professional practice who attempt anything but the same.
