Announcement for this evening’s concert

Sir John Tomlinson is unable to perform in tonight’s concert, due to illness, and will be replaced by Mikhael Svetlov. We wish Sir John a speedy recovery and are delighted to welcome Mikhael to Cambridge. 

Described by the Washington Post as a “titanic, all-encompassing bass”, Svetlov has performed the role of Boris at the Bolshoi Theatre, in addition to numerous principal roles at the Metropolitan Opera, La Scala and the Royal Opera House.
