Noah Stewart at Classic FM Live

Classic FM's Tim Lihoreau has been talking to tenor Noah Stewart ahead of his performance at Classic FM Live.

The opera tenor has made a significant name for himself over in the States, equally accomplished in interpreting such core roles as Don Jose in Carmen or Rodolfo in La Boheme, or pioneering new roles in contemporary opera. Most recently he performed in Mozart's Requiem at Carnegie Hall.

Noah is currently appearing in Opera North's new production of the opera Madame Butterly, however despite a long stint in the UK his performance at Classic FM Live was Noah's London debut. He performed the opera aria ‘Recondita Armonia’ from Puccini's Tosca which features on his forthcoming Decca album due for release in the Autumn.
