This is a reminder that Sir John Tomlinson, one of our most distinguished opera singers, is now in Cambridge to inaugurate the Humanitas Series in Vocal Music (organised by CRASSH).

The first event, Michelangelo in Song (music by Britten, Wolf and Shostakovich), takes place on Monday, 23 February in the West Road Concert Hall at 7.30pm and is followed by The Construction of the Role of Wotan (5.00pm on Wednesday, 25 February at West Road Concert Hall) and The Construction of the Role of The Minotaur (5.00pm on Friday, 27 February at West Road Concert Hall).

For the Friday event we are also delighted to welcome back to Cambridge Sir Harrison Birtwistle, to be in conversation with Sir John about his opera The Minotaur.

Please do come along to what promise to be fascinating events - full details are available on the CRASSH website at
