British tenor Jeremy Ovenden has worked with greats such as Sir Simon Rattle, Daniel Barenboim, Riccardo Muti and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. A pupil of the legendary Nicolai Gedda and a tenor "of incredible virtuosity" (The Independent), on 25 February he will sing Benjamin Britten's last orchestral song cycle, conducted by the Brit, Rory Macdonald. The composer dedicated his Nocturnes to one of the most famous femmes fatales of the first half of the 20th century, Alma Mahler.
