Biography

“… a tenor voice to die for – pure, immediate, unforced, utterly reliable.”
Nicholas Routley, Australian Stage, 23rd June 2018

Australian tenor Brenton Spiteri won the Herald Sun Aria in 2012. He went on to spend two seasons in the Young Artist Program at Opéra de Lyon, where his roles included Trac in Le Roi Carotte and Soldato/Mercurio in The Coronation of Poppea. He has performed for the majority of Australia’s major opera companies in roles including Tamino (The Magic Flute), Count Almaviva (The Barber of Seville), Ashley Crowther (Fly Away Peter), Rinuccio (Gianni Schicchi), Telemaco (The Return of Ulysees) and Ernesto (Don Pasquale). For the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, he has performed Britten’s Les Illuminations, and he collaborates frequently with Sydney Chamber Opera, for whom he recently created the role of Oscar Hopkins in Oscar and Lucinda to high critical acclaim. He currently holds the Gwen Catley Opera Scholarship at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.
