WNO is extremely shocked and sad to learn that Richard Angas (Bass) was taken ill yesterday during rehearsals for Peter Grimes at Opera North and died later in hospital. Audiences will have seen Richard recently with WNO in both the spring and summer seasons performing in Lulu, The Cunning Little Vixen and Wagner Dream. He was engaged to return to the company next summer to perform the role of Moses in Moses and Aron.
On behalf of everyone at WNO we would like to extend our deepest sympathy and condolences to his wife and family.
