Patrick Simms Performs in Midsummer Night's Dream at Halifax Summer Opera Festival

Patrick Simms will perform the role of Lysander in Benjamin Britten’s 1960 opera A Midsummer Night's Dream. The opera is presented by the Halifax Summer Opera Festival.

Patrick received Talent Trust scholarships from 2013-15. After studying opera at Dalhousie University, he performed with the Nova Scotia Youth Orchestra and played the tenor role of Prince Charming in Pauline Viardot’s Cendrillon at Mazzoleni Hall at the Royal Conservatory in Toronto in 2016.
