Rosenblatt moves

Rosenblatt Recitals, the series which presents young opera singers in recital in London is moving from its present home at St. John's Smith Square, to the Wigmore Hall. The 2011/12 series will conclude at St. John's with a recital by Sylvia Schwartz. Then the 2012/13 series opens on 24 September with a recital at Wigmore Hall by Lawrence Brownlee, accompanied by Iain Burnside. Brownlee has made something of a name for himself in the high Rossini roles (including of course La Fille du Regiment) so it will be exciting to hear him in recital. The season continues with Dimitra Theodossiu (12 November), Fabio Armiliato (14 January).

I have to confess that much as I like St. Johns, the move to the Wigmore Hall is welcome. Not only is the Wigmore Hall an iconic venue for singers, but simply St. Johns is just a little too lacking in the ideal intimacy for song recitals.
