As part of the Inaugural Humanitas Visiting Series in Vocal Music, Sir John Tomlinson took part in three events: the first was a recital entitled "Michelangelo in Song", the second a conversation on the construction of the role of Wotan with Patrick Carnery. This video shows Sir John Tomlinson in conversation with composer Sir Harrison Birtwistle about the construction of the role of the Minotaur. The session was chaired by Professor Jonathan Cross (University of Oxford).
During the event, 2 shorts videos from the production of "The Minotaur" at the Royal Opera House were shown. Here are the links:
