Over the past year George von Bergen has quickly established himself in Europe as an artist of formidable stage presence. It has been said of his recent Ford that he owns a “complexity and dark richness to his tone [that] allows him to convey an extraordinary range of emotions”. The 20011/12 season has seen him impress in both his debuts as Hamlet at Croatian National Opera and Ned Keene at La Scala. Upon his return to the UK, George has given “stand-out” performances as Ford at Holland Park and as Herald/Lord Hate-good at English National Opera.
Highlights of the 2012-13 season include The Pilgrim’s Progress at English National Opera, Belcore L’elisir d’amore for Opera Holland Park and Haydn Nelson Mass with The Northern Symphonia. George is an ENO Harewood Associate Artist.
