About me:

Mark recently finished filming , playing Shakespeare's Richard II.

Press for Richard II: "Mark Burghagen’s portrayal of this foolish monarch cannot be described as anything other than outstanding." (Caitlin Burge, Unknown Magazine)

"Burghagen’s performance is captivating in every moment." (Arts York)

"High praise must go to Burghagen who takes on the foolish but tragic Richard II with pure gusto and moving vulnerability." (One&Other)

Press for Opera North's Der Rosenkavalier: "Burghagen did some nifty scene-stealing." (The Telegraph)
