Denis Coe

It is with very great sadness that we announce the passing of British Youth Opera's much loved, inspirational and visionary Founder, Denis Coe.

Denis will be hugely missed by us all. Full tributes to this remarkable man will follow, but for the moment our thoughts and sympathies are with his children and their families.
