I’ve booked for the recital at Temple Church on 22nd October 2010 and hope to see Macbeth at ROH next year and can’t wait.

But Simon as Simon would be a dream come true and I would go the the proverbial ends of the earth to see it. Reading that snippet of news has made my day!

It would certainly be interesting to see what else Simon is planning to do later this year (and into 2013). There is nothing in his schedule after July, which is surely strange for a singer of his renown and calibre.

I heard that Simon will sing “Rigoletto” in Berlin Deutsche Oper.
Do you Know When?

I am very confused indeed! I thought Simon had a Master Class scheduled at the Royal College of Music London on Thursday 17th October 2013 ? I was disappointed because it clashed with one to be given by Gerald Finley also on Thursday 17th October.

Now I cannot find any listing for SK’s Master Class at the RAM I am sure I did not dream it?
Now it seems Gerald has a MC TOMORROW at the Royal College of music which I will attend
Help please !!
