There were tremors in the cowslips when Jeremy Bines won the job as as chorus master for Berlin’s Deutsche Oper. He leaves, after eight years, in September. Not long to find a replacement.

Not to worry. Gly have repatriated an English musician from his exile as interim chorus master at Dutch National Opera.

Nicholas Jenkins is vastly experienced across all forms of English opera and has quite a large portfolio of work on the continent.

    Since september 1, 2014 and still at present Ching Lien Wu is our ChorusMaster at Dutch National Opera. There is no interim. Before 2014 Nicholas has indeed done some great productions with the choir at DNO as interim. Very talented and sympatic person and musician.
