Vocalist - Tenor

Bellemer Featured on BBC 3

Tenor John Bellemer was featured on BBC Radio 3 as part of the broadcast of Delius' A Village Romeo and Juliet on December 20, 2012.

In the 150th anniversary year of the birth of Delius, a rare opportunity to hear one of his most highly rated stage works in a recent production from the 2012 Wexford Festival. A Village Romeo and Juliet contains some of Delius's finest music, including The Walk to the Paradise Garden, and reinterprets a dark novella by the Swiss nineteenth-century novelist Gottfried Keller. Farmers Manz and Marti row over a patch of unclaimed land between their farms, whilst all is harmony between their grown-up children Sali and Vreli who fall fatally in love. Plus, at just before 4pm, another great setting of English words.
