Callum Thorpe was outstanding, his large, dark voice and nervy acting bringing some seriously volatile menace Opera Magazine

Tenor John McMunn recently graduated from the Royal College in London but has already been booked to sing major roles at Aldeburgh, the Proms and in Germany, Denmark, Italy and Norway. Caryl Hughes' recital last year in Mersea was a revelation, and we are thrilled that she is able to return. Keri Fuge is right at the beginning of her career, and has just been asked by Glyndebourne to cover a role this year - a real affirmation of her emerging talent.

Roger Montgomery is principal horn of both the Royal Opera House and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, an amazing feat which nobody has ever achieved before.

They are partnered by a hand-picked professional orchestra of top players, and the Festival Choir who will rehearse during the festival.

The Levin completion of the Requiem is a revelation - the first version written in true Mozartian language, with echoes of his genius.
