The North East, Notes From Hidden Britain
Down the coast from Gateshead is the fishing town of Seaham, the birthplace of one of our greatest living operatic baritones, Sir Thomas Allen. While at Ryhope Grammar School, Allen's potential was spotted by his physics teacher, Denis Weatherley, himself a fine baritone. His teacher helped him gain a place at the Royal College of Music and, after making his debut at the Royal Opera House in 1971 has gone on to perform in the world's major opera houses.
