Remembering Malcolm Fraser

Tue 19 July 2022

A Tribute to the Founder of Buxton International Festival

Malcolm Fraser was one of the founders of the Buxton Festival, an international teacher and mentor in opera, and an inspiration to a generation of opera directors, singers, and teachers. He was the first Artistic Director of the then Buxton Festival, and an instructor at the Royal Northern College of Music.  He was influential in the early careers of many opera singers and directors.  Because of the vivid inspiration he offered to so many, we offer an opportunity to remember him and pass on his legacy to a new generation.  The event will include a film and panel discussion on Malcolm’s productions and work practices along with an exhibition of archival materials.
