Many congratulations to Third Year student, Isaac Rogers, who recently recorded the role of ‘Sandro’ in a new opera by Torsten Rasch and Max Hoehn for Opera-21.
“The opera, called ‘The Last Castrato’, relates the story of the famous singer, Alessandro Morechi, who was one of the last boys to be castrated for the glory of art and the glory of God. He died in 1922 and was the last representative if this voice type,” explains Mr Swinson, Trinity’s Director of Music.
Isaac recorded with the Chroma Ensemble; internationally celebrated singers Andrew Watts, Rebecca Bottone, Alan Ewing and conductor Gerry Cornelius. He sang the challenging role with aplomb, eliciting highly complimentary comments from the conductor, such as, “terrifically well done and it was a pleasure to work with you,” and from the principal singer: “What an utter star that boy is!”
We certainly agree. Well done, Isaac.
