In March I got the chance to jump in the Hungarian first premiere of Handel’s musical drama – which was one of the major performances of the Budapest Spring Festival 2012. I was called upon five days before the performance to sing Lichas, the herald, so it was quite a challenge to get on well with the role. Fortunately all my colleagues supported me in that short period – thank you so much! The semi-staged concert – directed by Csaba Káel – was a joint production of the Palace of Arts and the Budapest Spring Festival and was performed in the Bartók Béla National Concert Hall. The Orfeo Orchestra was conducted by György Vashegyi.
