MA Music graduate performs at Royal Opera House

We are extremely proud to announce that Benjamin Hulett, one of our MA Music graduates, recently appeared in the Royal Opera House’s production of Leoncavallo's Pagliacci. The performance was broadcast on BBC Radio 3, live from Covent Garden.

Benjamin followed the pathway on nineteenth century music and opera music here at Oxford Brookes University, and is one of our most successful international students. He was attracted to the course after reading about the OBERTO research unit (Oxford Brookes: Exploring Research Trends in Opera). Benjamin took advantage of the flexible learning methods At Brookes, managing to touring commitments, whilst participating in seminars by Skype! He previously studied Music at New College Oxford, and Opera at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London.
