Kiwi Harry at home with chamber opera

Harry Grigg

Director Jonny Danciger and GHO composer Christopher Wood have chosen New Zealand-born tenor Harry Grigg to sing the role of Reynard in the forthcoming new production of the chamber opera No Way Out! at the OSO Arts Centre, in Barnes.

Harry has expressed his excitement at the challenge of a new role in a new work: Chamber opera is such a unique challenge and delight as it offers such an intimate look at its subject matter and No Way Out! is the perfect example of this. I can’t wait to explore Chris’s wonderful opera and to collaborate with Jonny and the team at Oso Arts Centre and Guest House Opera to create a truly special show.

Harry has just finished his Master of Performance degree as the Kiri te Kanawa Scholar at the Royal College of Music. Prior to his studies in London he was a DMMF Studio Artist with New Zealand Opera. Recent roles have included Amour (Castor et Pollux), Monostatos Die Zauberflöte) and Scarramuccio (Adriadne auf Naxos).
