April brings many things but not that often a new production of The Dutchman at ENO - directed by Johnathen Kent. But this year it also brings about a change in cast as  Julian Gavin has been forced to  withdraw from the role of Erik for health reasons and is replaced by ENO, and others,  favoured Parsifal: Stuart Skelton. Of course he is far from a newcomer to the role having already performed as Erik at: Deutsche Oper Berlin, The Staatsoper Unter den Linden (under Daniel Barenboim), Vienna State Opera, Hamburg, Strasbourg (Julia Jones), Frankfurt, Colorado and Adelaide. This is becoming an ever more intriguing Dutchman by the day.And don't forget the ever wonderful Clive Bayley remains as Daland - his Wagner remains something one must simply hear.
