We are delighted to announce that tenor Peter Auty has joined our roster for worldwide general management.
Peter’s recent appearances have included Canio and Turiddu for Welsh National Opera, Pollione and Dick Johnson for English National Opera, Lensky for Malmö Opera, Radames and Maurizio Adriana Lecouvreur for Opera Holland Park, Don Jose for Aalto-Musiktheater Essen and for Opera North, and Erik for New Zealand Opera.
Recent reviews for those roles include:
“Auty sang Pollione nobly and strongly, providing a firmness of purpose in the great trio.” (Robert Hugill)
“Peter Auty, one of Britain’s foremost tenors, is an effortless Lensky.” (Gunilla Brodrej)
“Auty makes a terrific Radamès, sensitively characterised and heroically sung.” (Tim Ashley)
“As Ramerrez, aka Dick Johnson, Peter Auty also excels himself. I’ve never seen him act with such energy, and his vibrant tenor finds a grand sweep for Ch’ella mi creda.” (Rupert Christiansen)
Current and future operatic engagements include the world premiere of Peter Maxwell-Davies’s final opera The Hogboon with the London Symphony Orchestra under Sir Simon Rattle, Carmen in Essen and Fritz Kobus in L’Amico Fritz for Scottish Opera.
Much in demand on the concert platform, Peter Auty has worked with orchestras including the London Philharmonic Orchestra, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, the Iceland Symphony Orchestra, Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic. His current and upcoming concert engagements include Elijah and Mahler’s Eighth Symphony at the Three Choirs Festival, Rossini’s Petite messe solenelle at the BBC Proms, and The Dream of Gerontius with the Minnesota Orchestra.
