Following the huge success of their first tour together in 2009, Australiaâ€™s favourite tenor and bass baritone will once again join forces in 2011 to present an exciting new program of opera classics, show tunes and other popular song. David Hobson is loved by audiences for many famous tenor roles including that of Rodolfo in Baz Luhrmannâ€™s acclaimed production of Pucciniâ€™s â€œLa bohÃ¨meâ€.
Teddy Tahu Rhodes is now one of the most sought after bass baritones in the world, with his performance as The Toreador in Bizetâ€™s â€œCarmenâ€ at The Metropolitan Opera in New York hailed as a triumph. Both these singers are able to cross easily into other musical genres, and audiences and critics alike were hugely impressed by the versatility they displayed during the 2009 tour.
On the 2011 Australian tour, David Hobson and Teddy Tahu Rhodes will again perform with Australiaâ€™s leading accompanist, Sharolyn Kimmorley.
