About Anthony Michaels-Moore
Grammy-nominated Baritone Anthony Michaels-Moore is the first British winner of the Luciano Pavarotti International Voice Competition (Philadelphia, 1985) and has since appeared regularly at many of the world's top opera houses, and recorded and performed concert repertoire with many of the world’s leading orchestras and conductors of note. In a 30-year career Anthony has sung over 60 leading roles at the Wiener Staatsoper, Teatro alla Scala, Opéra National de Paris, Bayerische Staatsoper, Deutsche Oper and Staatsoper Berlin, Opernhaus Zürich, the Metropolitan Opera, San Francisco Opera and numerous other stages across Europe, Asia and the Americas. His home theatre is the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden where his performances in leading roles totals more than 300. Opera News has praised Anthony with having "one of the most the most gorgeous voices on the stage today. ...His sound has a real presence and its honeyed opulence dominated every scene in which he appeared."
Anthony has distinguished himself as a specialist in Verdi and Puccini roles, most renowned for his portrayals of Rigoletto, Falstaff, Simon Boccanegra, Nabucco, Iago in Otello, Germont in La traviata, Sharpless in Madama Butterfly, and Scarpia in Tosca. Of his Rigoletto at the ENO, The Times wrote, “As befits such a dark opera, deep voices dominate. Michaels-Moore’s Rigoletto is in a class apart because he somehow manages to be gloriously lyrical and terrifyingly baleful at the same time. He joins the notes together in beautifully sustained lines; a masterclass for young singers. Yet the power he musters is properly monstrous, and that is matched by his sinister lurches across the stage.
