John Soper

Over the years, John has been in many of York Opera's productions, either as a chorus member or as a principal. He has also been one of our main designers, responsible most recently for the acclaimed set of Macbeth at the Theatre Royal. In addition to providing most of our publicity designs, he has on occasion turned his hand to directing productions such as The Beggar's Opera. Having played most of the genial "patter" roles in G and S operas, this year he has recreated that of a "highly susceptible chancellor". The timing could not be better, he feels, after the appearance at a recent Conservative Party conference of one George Osborne.
