About me

Hello, I’m Jonathan Burton, now living in East Sussex on the south coast of England with my partner Diana.  Until recently I worked as a Surtitler at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, in London, and I also do freelance work such as translations, opera subtitles on DVD, and writing concert programme notes.  For fun, I play the bassoon and contrabassoon, compose and arrange music, and lots of other things.

If you’d like more background info, click on ‘More about me’ in the ‘Pages’ column…


You will also find me on Facebook, and on the professional network LinkedIn.

  2. Hey man! Just wanted to say hello to my overseas counterpart. I’m Jonathan Burton as well living in Nashville,TN USA. Was going to get a blog on wordpress and wanted to see who had my name on here already. Think it’s awesome that you’re a musician as I am as well. Must be something musical about our name. Anyways, hope your music is going well. God bless!
