One of Britain’s most distinguished and best established baritones, Peter Savidge has performed for the major opera companies in the UK and for many leading houses in Europe and elsewhere. His elegant and well focused style of singing has been singled out for particularly high praise.
He made his professional debut with the English Music Theatre and has featured regularly for Welsh National Opera, Opera North, Scottish Opera and the Royal Opera House Covent Gardens in roles such as Figaro Barber of Seville, Sharpless Madam Butterfly, Don Giovanni Don Giovanni, The Count Marriage of Figaro, Don Alfonso Cosi fan Tutte, Faninal Der Rosenkavalier, The Traveller Death in Venice and Ned Keene Peter Grimes and Mr. Flint Billy Budd.
Abroad he has sung roles for Canadian Opera Company Toronto, Opera de Rhin Strasbourg, Opera Comique and Chatelet Theatre Paris, Cologne Opera and houses in Tel Aviv, Berlin, Nancy, Genova, Modena and Reggio Emilia.
As well appearing in all the major British concert venues, Peter Savidge has a formidable international career and has sung at the festivals of Aldeburgh, Edinburgh, Florence, Venice, Tours, Brussels, Vienna, Jerusalem, Tel Aviv, Amsterdam, and Oslo.
He has recorded albums of songs by Vaughan Williams, Bax and Bantock; with conductors Sir John Eliot Gardiner and Sir Charles Mackerras and Albert Herring with Steuart Bedford. Equally at home in light music, he has featured on Friday Night is Music Night and with the RTE in Dublin.
