ben thapa - he/him
I started as one quarter of the group G4, runners up on the X Factor in 2004. My varied experiences have seen me work as an advocate for National Foster Care Day, having been fostered between 11 and 16, and run 15 marathons, raising in excess of £30000 for various mental health charities, a cause close to my heart.
On the concert and opera platform, I have sung solo roles for the Royal Opera, Scottish Opera, Garsington Opera and the Teatru Manoel, with the CBSO, BBC Concert Orchestra and the Philharmonia, with a particular focus on contemporary music. Future plans include Siegmund (Die Walküre, St. John's, Smith Square).
My hobbies include perfume, gin mixology, a continued interest in running and Asian cookery.
