Guy Elliott (tenor) is increasingly in demand as an opera and concert soloist. His oratorio highlights this year include; the Evangelist in the St John Passion (Bach) and the tenor solos in Messiah (Handel), Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony, Mozart’s Requiem and Mendelssohn’s Lobgesang. He has performed with ensembles such as the English Festival Orchestra, Southern Sinfonia, Amadeus Orchestra and Hertfordshire Philharmonic.
Guy is currently covering the roles of Telemachus Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria (Monteverdi) and Mercurio La Calisto (Cavalli) for English Touring Opera. His recent staged roles also include Twink in Boys of Paradise (Salorien) for WorkshOPERA, Olly Waxwings (Woo Music) for English Touring Opera, Ferrando Così fan tutte (Mozart) with Everyone’s Theatre Company and Lysander A Midsummer Night’s Dream (Britten) with Trinity Laban opera (a role for which he was reviewed as ‘custom designed’), and Belshazzar Handel’s Belshazzar, again for Trinity Laban Opera.
A keen exponent of new music, Guy has given several world premieres including the role of Erhard in Spiegelspiel (Mander) at the Austrian Cultural Forum. He has also performed experimental vocal works, most notably Stimmung (Stockhausen) at the Queen Elizabeth Hall.
Currently a student at Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music & Dance, Guy studies with Sophie Grimmer and Anna Tilbrook. During his time there, he has performed in public masterclasses with Sir John Elliot Gardiner, James Gilchrist and Dame Felicity Palmer. Guy was a choral scholar at the Old Royal Naval College for three years and won the Leith Hill Award for singers in 2015. His studies are generously supported by Trinity Laban, the Joaninha Trust and a Help Musicians UK Fleming Award.
