Laurence Panter is a British tenor who has worked with Longborough Festival Opera on a number of past productions. Later this year, he is due to work with Barefoot Opera, creating the role of 'Mervyn' in Orlando Gough's community opera Bloom Britannia, and also with Gothic Opera as pianist for their production of Gounod's La Nonne Sanglante. In the early months of 2020, Laurence sang the part of Satyavan in Holst's Savitri, conducted by Alistair Dawes, musically directed a touring production of Mozart's Don Giovanni with Merry Opera Co. and got as far as production rehearsals for the role of Steuerman in Wagner's Der fliegende Holländer with Rose Opera before theatres shut. Since then, Laurence has sung with Rogue Opera for remote performances, musically directed and sung for The Connections Project - a series of oratorio-based videos directed by Lysanne van Overbeek, and learned a quantity of song repertoire to keep busy and relatively sane.
