My name is Philip Tsaras and I have lived in London for the past 40 years. I am an actor, singer, dancer, writer and voice over artist.

I love all kinds of music, but especially classical and opera. Consequently the majority of my posts concern opera and opera singers. My favourite singers tend to be those who have instantly recognisable voices, those like Callas, Schwarzkopf, Vickers, Gobbi, De Los Angeles, Janet Baker and more, all of whom bring something unique to whatever they sing. Though all these singers can sing with beauty of tone, it seems to me that their quest is for singing that is beautifully expressed. In the words of Keats,

“Beauty is truth, truth beauty,—that is all
                Ye know on earth, and all ye need to know.”
