English Touring Opera
Paula Sides Soprano
Jonathan Gale Piano
This autumn, English Touring Opera presents an exciting new production of Viktor Ullmann's brilliant opera, The Emperor of Atlantis, which was composed and rehearsed at Terezín concentration camp before the composer was sent to his death at Auschwitz. In this accompanying recital, Paula Sides (soprano) and Jonathan Gale (piano) celebrate Ullmann's life and lesser-known works through a selection of the many songs he wrote throughout his tragically short career.
Originally from Tennessee, Paula Sides studied opera at the Royal College of Music, where she received the Tagore Gold Medal. Jonathan Gale studied music at Cambridge University before studying as a conductor at the St Petersburg Conservatoire and as a repetiteur at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. Together they have been finalists in the Young Concert Artists Trust competition at the Wigmore Hall.
