About David

Tenor David Horton has recently completed a successful tour with English Touring Opera, performing in all three of their critically acclaimed productions, including playing Gravedigger 1 in The Silver Lake by Kurt Weill. Earlier in the year he joined Garsington Opera as one of their Alvarez Young Artists, covering the role of Marinoni in Offenbach’s Fantasio. He also reprised the role of Eisenstein in a dynamic new pop-up production of Strauss’ Die Fledermaus with Baseless Fabric Theatre. In 2020 David will be making both his role and company debuts with Mid-Wales Opera, playing Don Basilio in their new production of The Marriage of Figaro. He will subsequently be returning to Garsington Opera as an Alvarez Young Artist, and covering the role of Gamekeeper in Dvořák’s Rusalka.
