Alex also runs two successful vocal practices, composes, produces his own opera’s. He is currently working on a new two act Opera and he has been generously supported by the Britten-Peers foundation.
This performance was powerful. Both artists demonstrated amazing stamina and great sensitivity throughout the work and I was glad that Alex Poulton was able to perform it in one as the continuity did much to maintain the living/natural essence of the work. The choreography was simple but well-created and changed the performance from being a simple recital to a theatrical performance which helped enormously to envelope the audience within the work.
