Wotan, Die Walküre. Singapore.
Welcome to the website of Warwick Fyfe, Australian / International opera singer, Helden Bass Baritone, Helpman award winner, Wagner scholar, and Winston Churchill Fellow.
This year has been a mixed bag of triumphs and disappointment, owing
to Covid 19 travel restrictions, state border and theatre closures, self isolations, full quarantines, vaccinations, permits and so forth.
Sadly, after a wonderful opening night of the OA AIDA, SOH was closed down yet again, due to Covid
lockdown in Sydney . A further blow was the cancellation and postponement of the OA Ring Cycle in Brisbane, owing to QLD border closures. A great disappointment to everyone involved with the production, as well as our loyal opera supporters. Hopefully,
we may see some decrease in border closures in 2022. These are tough times for Australian opera singers, opera companies, orchestras, the opera community, and arts workers generally.
