The Profumo Affair is one of the most notorious British political scandals. It ultimately contributed to the end of both a prime ministerial career and a Conservative government, as well as creating a security risk with a Russian diplomat at the height of the Cold War. Composer Thomas Hyde and librettist David Norris explore this extraordinary tale from the point of view of Stephen Ward, the unfortunate society osteopath who served as a scapegoat for his prominent ”friends” at the root of this infamous affair in a captivating one-man opera, That Man Stephen Ward. Taking on the role of Ward, baritone Damian Thantrey is joined by renowned conductor George Vass and his superb Nova Music Opera Ensemble in this world premiere recording.
