Sassoon is the famous war poet, ex-lover of Ross. Handsome in his military uniform, but also conflicted in his attitude to the war. Part of him loves the exhilaration of it and he feels so guilty about that. He is suffering from shell-shock but planning to go back to the front, which friends are convinced will kill him. He is very very tired as well. Operatic vocal training and sight-reading skills essential. Audio samples also a must. NB this is an audio job only.
