Home Talking about Opera Richard Vardigans Schedule / Guestbook Contact
Richard Vardigans was born in Kent, England and studied both in his native country and with a German government scholarship at the Herbert von Karajan Foundation in Berlin and with Franco Ferrara in Italy.

For over 25 years he has been active as conductor, pianist and lecturer – most recently as Generalmusikdirektor of the Theater and Orchestra in Annaberg (Germany).

In addition to various CD and radio recordings (BBC and Netherlands Radio) he has for many years given introductory concert and opera talks in which his decidedly "English" sense of humour together with an in-depth knowledge of the repertoire combine to produce both an informative and entertaining experience.
