New Artist - Philip Sheffield
We are delighted to announce that the tenor Philip Sheffield has joined our roster for general management. Philip’s career has taken him all over the world from Buenos Aires to New York to Tokyo. He studied at Cambridge University and the Royal College of Music and made his opera début under Roger Norrington in Monteverdi’s Orfeo. He was then invited to La Monnaie for L’incoronazione di Poppea which led to many engagements in Belgium, France and Germany.
Highlights of recent seasons include Harry La fanciulla del West and Fireman 1 Between Worlds (world première) both for English National Opera, Čerevin From the House of the Dead for Opera national du Rhin and Rev. Horace Adams Peter Grimes for the Ópera de Oviedo.
In the current season Philip covers the role of The Major in the world première of Elena Langer’s Figaro Gets a Divorce for Welsh National Opera, and returns to the Hyogo Performing Arts Center, Japan as Snout A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Further ahead he performs Rev. Horace Adams Peter Grimes at the Opéra de Monte-Carlo.
