One of the highlights of this year's Aldeburgh Festival is the UK premiere of Thomas Larcher's first opera, The Hunting Gun. First seen at the Bregenz Festival in 2018, the opera is based on a best-selling post-war Japanese novella by Yashushi Inoue. The production is directed by Karl Markovics and conducted by Ryan Wigglesworth, with a cast including tenor Samuel Boden and baritone Peter Schöne.

Making his UK debut in the production is the young German baritone Peter Schöne who plays the hunter, Josuke Misugi. Schöne, who counts winning the Schubert-Competition in Graz in 2003 and Berlin’s National Singing Competition in 2004 amongst his achievements, recently joined the ensemble of the State Opera House of Saarbrücken. On 7 May 2019, he will appear in [pi:ps] by Swiss composer Luca Martin, which sets extractsfrom the diaries of Samuel Pepys, is performed at the Grand Concert Hall in Solingen in Germany, in a concert with the Bergische Symphoniker conducted by Peter Kuhn which also includes Elgar's Enigma Variations.
