A Taste of Hoffmann

For those of you who were unable to see UGA's Tales Of Hoffmann here are some photos of the performance.

I want to thank Victoria Fox (Nicklausse - Muse), Elisabeth Slaten (Antonia), Evelyn Shreves (Olympia), Kelsey Fredriksen (Giuletta), Richard Block (Dr. Miracle/Coppelius), Chris Voss (Dappertutto, Lindorf) for their great performances and collegial support. I would also like to thank Frederick Burchinal and Kathy Wright for their instruction, guidance and the inestimable experiences shared during the rehearsal period of this enormous opera. I would be remise if I did not thank Mark Cedel and the UGA symphony orchestra for nailing a challenging score and helping to make great music. Finally and certainly not least, thank you to the audience - the readers of the blog - friends and family who came to see the show, and those who were unable but sent your love and support.

Tales of Hoffmann


If there are those of you out there in cyberspace still reading:

Tonight is the opening of UGA's Les Contes d'Hoffmann (The tales of Hoffmann) - E.T.A. Hoffmann, the German romantic poet, composer renaissance man.

I will be playing the part of Hoffmann, and what an exciting few weeks it has been here at UGA.

Please check out this link, which will bring you to an interview between Andre Gallant - of the Athens Banner Herald - and myself.


(photos and more on Hoffmann to come!)
