Lee Blakeley

We’re all incredibly saddened to hear of the death of alumnus Lee Blakeley. So many Royal Conservatoire of Scotland students from the Schools of Opera, Music and Drama have benefited hugely from the experience of working under Lee’s direction of outstanding opera productions, the most recent of which was Die Fledermaus just a couple of months ago.

We will miss him tremendously and our thoughts are with his friends and family.
