Sunday Brunch – Tim Mead is Eustazio

A relative newcomer, countertenor Tim Mead (whom I just noticed in the 2011 Glyndebourne Rinaldo) already has a growing international career.  He made his  Glyndebourne debut in 2006, covering for David Daniels in David McVicar's Giulio Cesare. He will sing Messiah with the New York Philharmonic in December 2012.

Here is an excerpt from Rinaldo. Instead of trying to come up with new superlatives, I am simply going to quote from BBC Proms – Opera Today:
