Skelton

Tenor

Born in Sydney, Stuart Skelton studied voice at the University of Cincinnati, going on to join the San Francisco Opera’s Merola Opera Program. Now considered to be one of the best Heldentenors of his generation, he was named Male Singer of the Year at the 2014 International Opera Awards.

Skelton has appeared in opera productions at such renowned houses as the Metropolitan Opera in New York, La Scala in Milan and the Deutsche Oper in Berlin. His long-awaited debut at the Royal Opera House as Siegmund in Wagner’s Die Walküre recently met with great acclaim.

Other notable operatic roles include the title role of Britten’s Peter Grimes, which he has performed at the English National Opera and Opera Australia, as well as that of Verdi’s Otello, which he recently sang at the Met.

Skelton is also in high demand with such orchestras as those of Melbourne, Sydney, Boston, Chicago and London. His concert repertoire includes Mahler’s Das klagende Lied and Das Lied von der Erde, Beethoven’s Symphony No. 9 and Missa solemnis, Verdi’s Messa da Requiem and Elgar’s The Dream of Gerontius.

Skelton will be making his first appearance with the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra in the 2019–20 season.
