As stage director Henry made his official directing debut with the Nevada Opera’s production of « L’Italiana in Algeri » by Rossini. He was invited by company director Ted Puffer to direct the production and sing the leading bass role of Mustafa. This was a tour-de-force undertaking but teamed with such artists as Joyce Campana, Monica Harte, David Rice, and conducted by Ted Puffer this proved to be very promissing debut.

Henry’s other directing engagements include ; Gluck’s « Orphée & Euridyce », Menotti’s « Le Téléphone », Berlioz’ « The Death of Cleopatra », Rossini’s « Giovanna d’Arco » and Monteverdi’s « Lamento d’Ariana » for the Patchwork Musical Festival in Ligugé(France) as well as for the Château de Galmoisin’s summer festival(France).

Puccini’s Suor Angelica was the vehicle for his Norwegian debut (featuring Norwegians, Soprano Kristin Kostopoulos in the title role and Mezzo-Soprano Berit Valberg singing the Princess) in the Bodø Damenkor’s production in Bodø(Norway).

Henry made his New York City directing debut with the world premiere of Christian Mcleer’s « G-Train » also singing the role of Steve, this success brought him back for another world premiere « Shot » again performing in the production the role of Jack. Henry has now been invited by Mr. Mcleer to sing as Bass Soloist in his latest creation, « Requiem » to be premiered in New York, March of 2007.
