Christopher Maltman made his company debut as Beaumarchais in The Ghosts of Versailles.
British baritone Christopher Maltman studied singing at the Royal Academy of Music. A globally-renowned Don Giovanni, he has sung that role in London, Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Salzburg, Amsterdam, Toulouse, San Sebastian, Beijing and Chicago, and adds New York and Edinburgh this year.
Increasingly in demand for Verdi roles, he has sung Rodrigo in Don Carlo, Simon Boccanegra, Conte di Luna in Il Trovatore, Guy de Montfort in Les Vêpres Siciliennes and will soon add Don Carlo di Vargas in La Forza del Destino, Rigoletto and Germont in La Traviata. He won the Lieder prize at the Cardiff Singer of the World early in his career and has continued to delight audiences with his sensitive and engaging song performances, many of which are documented in acclaimed recordings. His vast and varied discography, from Purcell to Ades includes John Corigliano’s Grammy Award-winning The Ghost of Versailles from LA Opera.
