American Theatre Wing have today published a video entitled Working in Theatre: Vocal Coach, which features footage of Raúl working with esteemed vocal coach, Joan Lader.
She can be seen advising Raúl on how to breathe and how to feel the movements these breaths cause. There is also a snippet of him singing.
You can watch Raúl's section of the video below:
Raúl will join a host of theatre favorites in stage in Poughkeepsie, New York, as part of Vassar and New York Stage and Film’s 34th Powerhouse Season.
In addition to Raúl those newly added to the roster include Tony winner Alice Ripley, Tony nominee Deneé Benton, recent Dear Evan Hansen star Noah Galvin, and Olivier Award winner Lesli Margherita.
Raúl will star in and serve as creative consultant for the mainstage presentation of The Waves, adapted from the Virginia Woolf novel. The synopsis reads as follows:
Six childhood friends and their shifting relationships come vibrantly to life in this captivating chamber musical inspired by Virginia Woolf’s celebrated novel. Over the course of one day - or is it a lifetime? - The Waves illuminates the interior yearnings, ambitions, and defeats of these extraordinary individuals with stirring choral music and Woolf’s signature text.
Performances will run July 19–29, with post-show discussions on Jul 24 & 28.
Could a return to SVU be on the cards for Raúl? Well, lead actress, Mariska Hargitay (Olivia Benson)seems to suggest that it is.
Raúl's character, ADA Rafael Barba, was written out of the series mid way through series 19 after he helped to end the life of a severely disabled and brain damaged baby. He was put on trial but found not guilty but decided to resign his job, stating he had 'to move on'.
But in an interview conducted by TV Insider this week - while she and creator Dick Wolf were at the Paley Centre - Mariska was asked if we would see Barba back on the show. Her answer. "Yes, I can promise you that'.
Needless to say this news makes us very happy! We hope Mariska knows that fans are going to hold her to her promise!
