Phillip Rhodes on a role
Posted on 3 July 2012
The Foundation continues to support young New Zealand baritone Phillip Rhodes who recently sang the title role in the brand new opera Hôhepa for The NBR New Zealand Opera at the 2012 New Zealand International Arts Festival. In a recent letter to the Foundation Phillip passed on the good news that he will be singing the role of Conte di Luna in the Dorset Opera’s production of Il Trovatore in July. New Sussex Opera have also asked him to perform the role of Frank in their semi-staged version of Puccini's Edgar in September/October and Opera North have offered him the role of Aeneas in Handel's Dido and Aeneas and also the cover of Iago in their production of Verdi's Otello in Jan/Feb. Things are really starting to happen for Phillip.
