Garsington Opera - 2013 Simon Sandbach and Helen Clarke awards

Jan Capinski
Garsington Opera's Simon Sandbach and Helen Clarke awards have this year gone to baritone Jan Capinski who understudied Father in Hansel and Gretel, and to soprano Alice-Rose Privett who understudied Gretel in Hansel and Gretel. Both sang in the chorus in Maometto Secondo. The awards, formerly known as the Chorus Awards, recognise extraordinary young talent, musical skill and contribution to productions. 

Jan Capinski studied at the Academy of Music in his native Krakow and at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama. He recently appeared in British Youth Opera's production of Britten's Paul Bunyan (see my review). Alice-Rose Privett studied at Chethams School of Music, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama and continues her studies at the Royal Academy of Music. She recently appeared in British Youth Opera's production of Cimarosa's The Secret Marriage (see my review)
