Singers mourn a British bass-baritone

News is spreading of the death of Lynton Black, a popular figure at Covent Garden and many UK stages.

He also sang at the Paris Opéra, Aix-en-Provence Festival, La Monnaie, Brussels, and Bavarian State Opera.

At Theater Basel he created a one-man show Beauty retire… and so to bed, based on the diaries of Samuel Pepys.

British opera companies are sadly derelict in reporting the passing of their artists.

  • His many colleagues from his days with the D’Oyly Carte opera company will be deeply saddened by this news. A huge character with a voice to match, he was a much valued and loved artist who lit up the stage and won the hearts of audiences and colleagues alike.
