Dr David MoseyStage director, A Midsummer Night’s Dream 2018
David Mosey has many years’ experience as both an actor and director in the UK and North America. He was at the Bristol Old Vic for a season where he played Prince Hal in Henry IV pt 1 and Mercutio in Romeo and Juliet. His directing credits include modern dress productions of Macbeth and King Lear at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, One Way Pendulum at the Alnwick Theatre Festival, The Duchess of Malfi (Atkinson College) and Rosencranz and Guildernstern are Dead (Newcastle University). His opera directing credits include Riders to the Sea with Opera Anonymous in Toronto, as well as directing Barab’s Mushroom Pizza, and co-directing Iolanthe with the Yorkshire Opera Workshop in England.
His work with HSOF has included Assistant Director and English dialogue author for Zauberflotte, co-director of Midsummer Night’s Dream, co-director and English dialogue author for Orpheus in the Underworld and director of Suor Angelica and Gianni Sccicci. As a stage director of opera, David firmly believes that the work should be presented in a context that is most immediately accessible to the audience and that his job is to help the performers achieve this.
