About Alan

Following a successful career as a baritone he made his debut as a tenor in 1992. Since then, his career has covered much of the tenor repertoire, including Rodolfo (La bohème), Alfredo (La traviata), Pinkerton (Madama Butterfly), Steva (Jenůfa), Boris (Káťa Kabanová), M.K. Gandhi (Satyagraha), Valzacchi (Der Rosenkavalier), The Four Servants (Les contes d'Hoffmann) and Schoolteacher (The Cunning Little Vixen). Alan has worked with lauded opera companies and houses, including the Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Scottish Opera, Opera North, the Royal Opera House, the English National Opera, Canadian Opera Company and The Metropolitan Opera as well as making appearances at the Edinburgh, Aldeburgh, Brighton, Bregenz and Ravenna festivals as well as the BBC Proms.

More recently he has established an enviable reputation in twentieth century and contemporary repertoire, including The Governor (prisoner of the state), Chairman Mao (Nixon in China) for the BBC Proms and the Berlin Festival, Caliban (The Tempest) for The Metropolitan Opera, Hiereus and the Translator (The Minotaur) and Old Man Marshall in Turnage's Anna Nicole for the Royal Opera House, as well as roles of the Prince, Manservant and Marquis (Lulu) for the Welsh National Opera. He sang his first Peter Grimes to great acclaim for the Aldeburgh Festival as part of their Britten centenary season to add to his already celebrated Aschenbach (Death in Venice). He sang his first Captain Vere (Billy Budd) at the Teatro Carlo Felice and reprised the role with Opera North and at the Aldeburgh Festival.

Alan is based in Edinburgh, Scotland
