Covered Covered & Performed Scenes Premiere of New Work Concert

Liberto – the messenger demanding Seneca’s suicide – may have only a single, shining Montiverdian instant, but William Branston’s generous tenor made the most of it. – Christopher Webber, Opera Magazine (2017)

We are further treated to a superb Lucano (as well as Liberto and Littore) from William Branston, whose voice and acting alike are utterly compelling: his “Mori felice” was hugely affecting. – Charlotte Valori, Bachtrack (2017)

MMus Performance
Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance
2016–2018

Welsh tenor William has recently finished his MMus postgraduate course at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance. He studies with Lynton Atkinson and Anna Tilbrook. Recent performances include the Male Chorus in The Rape of Lucretia (Britten) with Trinity Laban Opera, premiering the role of Gehazi in Stephen McNeff’s The Burning Boy with Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra and Lucano/Liberto in L’incoronazione di Poppea (Monteverdi) with Hampstead Garden Opera.

With Trinity Laban Postgraduate Opera Scenes he has performed the roles of Essex in Gloriana, Albert in Albert Herring, Quint in Turn of the Screw (Britten) and Paolino in Il Matrimonio Segreto (Cimarosa). Other recent performances include Britten’s St Nicholas with the Ludlow Orchestra, Mozart’s Requiem with Chipping Campden Festival Chorus and Handel’s Messiah with The Waynflete Singers at Winchester Cathedral. Alongside his studies William was also elected Vice-President of Music on the Trinity Laban Students’ Union.

He is very grateful to have received scholarships from Help Musicians UK and the Drapers’ De Turckheim Scholarship which helped him fund his studies at Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
