In this episode, James is joined by two of the greatest singers of their generation, soprano Natalya Romaniw and tenor David Butt Philip. Last seen at Opera Holland Park in the International Opera Award-nominated production of Tchaikovsky’s Iolanta, they discuss their journeys into becoming professional singers, their recent roles with the Royal Opera House and English National Opera, and the impact of COVID-19 on their work and the industry as a whole.

From the Producer’s Office is a series of informal podcasts with Opera Holland Park’s Director of Opera, James Clutton. In conversation with creatives and collaborators across the industry, we explore the process of putting opera on stage, and how the artists involved approach their craft.
