Peter Hoare will sing the role of Šapkin in a new production of Janáček’s From the House of the Dead, directed by Polish theatre and opera director Krzysztof Warlikowski. Conducted by Mark Wigglesworth, he will be joined by Sir Willard White as Alexandr Gorjancikov, Nicky Spence as Nikita and Štefan Margita as Luka Kuzmič.

From the House of the Dead is a co-production between the Royal Opera House, La Monnaie and Opera de Lyon, and will run from 7th – 24th March. Peter will then remain at Covent Garden to join the cast for the world premiere of George Benjamin and Martin Crimp’s Lessons in Love and Violence.
