Tenor Joshua Ellicott performs a wide range of repertoire — from song to opera to concert — with an array of conductors and ensembles. Recent highlights include the role of Tempo in Handel’s The Triumph of Time and Truth in a new production at Royal Danish Opera, the UK premiere of George Walker’s Lilacs with the BBC Philharmonic under John Storgårds, the Evangelist in a staged production of J.S. Bach’s St. John Passion at Teatro Arriaga in Spain, a new work by Stuart MacRae and Britten’s Canticle No. 5 at the Lammermuir Festival, Patrick Hawes’s The Great War Symphony at Classic FM Live, a tour of Handel’s Messiah with The King’s Consort, and Monteverdi’s Vespers with the Dunedin Consort in Cremona and at the Rheingau Musik Festival.
Song is another important feature of Mr. Ellicott’s artistry. One of the greatest successes of recent years has been a program devised around the World War I letters of his Great Uncle Jack.
This season Mr. Ellicott sings Britten’s Serenade with the Royal Northern Sinfonia, Handel’s Judas Maccabaeus for the second time with Capella Cracoviensis, J.S. Bach’s Christmas Oratorio with Latvijas Koncerti, J.S. Bach’s St. Matthew Passion with the Handel and Haydn Society in Boston, and a tour with The English Concert.
