It is always wonderful to make music with you, Chris!

I love this!! So much talent!

Chris: That was wonderful!

Lovely sir!!!! Listened to and voted.

You have a wonderful voice.

Beautiful, Chris. How did you record this? No headphones, so it isn’t the way we’re recording on SoundTrap or the way we did for the Community Choir, which was just mp3s.

Well done, Chris. Keep singing! Ben

Wow impressive. Next time sing it in Italian!!!๐Ÿ’œ

I have a MONUMENTAL announcement: Kuzco slept through the night last night and I had to wake HIM this morning!

But also... I've now been in the #usa for almost 2 years so people are asking what my plans are moving forward. This semester, I would have been in the first graduating class for the new Graduate Artist Certificate in Opera at @unt. I have had such a full and rewarding time here and have learnt so much. I have gotten exactly what I wanted out of my experience including continued technical and musical refinement, performance skills and opportunities, professional connections, and of course, a bunch of amazing new friends and colleagues.

The USA and UNT have been good to me. I have some really exciting professional engagements lined up in the future (Covid allowing) and still have more to learn and, I think, to give to the academic field of opera. So without further ado, I am #Excitedtoannounce that I have been accepted into the Doctor of Musical Arts (Vocal Performance) program here at UNT and will be sticking around for the duration. With everything that's going on in the world, I'm grateful to have something to look forward to: a whole lot of learning and performing, and making my sister (@xennajay) refer to me as Dr Curcuruto for posterity.

I have to admit that I agonised over sharing this clip. Opera singers, whilst rambunctious, are also highly-sensitive and, as with all artists, highly self-critical. Ultimately, this is a glimpse behind the curtain at an ambitious work-in-progress. I am so grateful to Fort Worth Opera for facilitating my association with the exceedingly talented, knowledgeable, and generous spirit that is Jennifer Rowley and for her genuinely caring guidance both in every coaching, and every interaction.

So, here we are working through the final moments of Alberich's curse (Bin ich nun frei) from Wagner's Das Rheingold!

By way of a #throwbackthursday, here is a wrap-up of a crash course in acting technique for singing actors I led for the vocal department at the Texas A&M University - Commerce, earlier in the semester. For fans of @theofficenbc, "What is it called Ryan? A visiting... professor emeritus?" ๐Ÿ˜‚

The students at TAMUC were super receptive to the challenging work I threw at them, and it was a lot of fun sharing and exploring different physical and psychological technical approaches to acting with them. Developing a technique often involves extending comfort zones which can necessarily be uncomfortable. These students were brave and engaged, and I hope to work with them again in the future!

Before pursuing opera, I completed an Honours degree in theatre and acting, and subsequently formed and operated the regional touring theatre company @felttiptheatre with my mate, @Alex Robson, who took over the shop when I went to music school. I was fortunate that acting was also an integrated part of my musical training, getting to work with members of faculty with various backgrounds, including author of 'The Singing and Acting Handbook', Thomas De Mallet Burgess, reconciling traditional acting technique with the requirements of the singing actor.
