Stuart Skelton, winner of the 2014 International Opera Awards for Best Male Singer and 2 Helpmann Awards, is one of the finest heldentenors on the stage today.
His repertoire encompasses some of opera’s most challenging roles, from Wagner's Tristan, Lohengrin, Parsifal, Rienzi, Siegmund and Erik to Strauss’s Kaiser and Bacchus, Janacek’s Laca, Saint-Saens’ Samson, Beethoven's Florestan and Britten’s Peter Grimes.
He has been critically acclaimed for his beautiful voice, outstanding musicianship and his intensely dramatic portrayals in performances on the leading concert and operatic stages of the world. In 2016 Stuart opens the Metropolitan Opera’s 2016/17 season, singing Tristan in a new production of Tristan und Isolde, conducted by Sir Simon Rattle.
