Mark has sung with all the major opera companies in the U.K. and has also toured extensively throughout America with London City Opera.
Mark’s opera career has recently taken a very different rout. Like his brother, Wynn Evans, who is the Go Compare character on the Go Compare adverts Mark is now destined for national recognition.
A few months ago Mark was invited by the film director Guy Richie to appear in the new Sherlock Holmes movie “Sherlock Holmes, A Game of Shadow” staring Robert Downey Jnr. and Jude Law. Mark’s role, obviously, is that of an opera singer. However, the producers of the movie were so impressed with Mark not only as a singer but also as a very talented actor and all round entertainer that they have contracted him to record a new CD and tour throughout the U.S. from November of this year. The CD will also be available in the UK at the same time. Wynn Evans also has a new recording deal on the back of his notoriety in the Go Compare adverts which will also hit the shops ready for the Christmas market.
Martin McEvoy, who will introduce the concert, has known Mark and Wynn for many years so watch out Gretton for 2012. We might just have the two hottest classical recording artists for you to Go Compare.
Tickets are available from Gretton Post Office or call 01536 770330.
