Arthur in Camelot (with Eryn Tvete former student)
Pooh-Bah in 'The Mikado'
- Salt Marsh Opera, Mystic, CT.
John-Scott Moir, basso
Here are some photos from productions I have been in, and people I have met, along with a review...
“The seasoned singing of John-Scott Moir proved a delight…Moir has an exceptional voice, deep and resonant; [He] also impresses with his movement ability, comic timing and the vocal dexterity to sound so convincing in all his various roles as Pooh-Bah, Lord High Everything Else.”

I was a Founding Member of the San Diego Gilbert and Sullivan Company, [S D G & S] later San Diego Comic Opera; and was the resident bass-baritone for a number of years, doing such roles as:
Col. Calverly Patience

Private Willis Iolanthe

I have been extremely fortunate to have known and worked with three former D'Oyly Carte personnel- John Reed, Kenneth Sandford, and Thomas Lawlor-
who said to me during the Mikado:
'John, you do G&S better than any American I have ever met.'
