First Year student, George Nearn Stuart, was offered the part of Cupid/page boy in the Opera, Der RosenKavalier, by Richard Strauss, earlier this year.

Having played Cupid previously, at The Royal Opera House in Les Vespres Scicillianis, he was thrilled to be playing another role in a different opera, with the performances having run from 2 June to 3 July.

A live recording from the show, which took place at Garsington Opera, will now be shared with a wider audience on OperaVision, free of charge.

The premiere takes place on YouTube at 6pm (UK time) on Saturday 30 October, and it is possible to catch up for six months thereafter.

OperaVision is supported by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme. It brings together 29 partners from 17 countries.

Well done, George. We can’t wait to watch the performance!

"It was really, really fun. The stage had a beautiful design of white and gold. The entrances were really fun to discover and go out of. And I even began and ended the whole play. If you want, I’m sure my pink costume will dazzle you!"
