Peter Auty

A former company principal at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, Peter Auty has appeared in principal roles across the UK, including at Glyndebourne Festival, ENO, Welsh National Opera, Opera North and Scottish Opera, and abroad at houses like Oper Frankfurt, Malmö Opera and New Zealand Opera. With reviews comparing him to Jon Vickers and Neil Shicoff, Peter is particularly acclaimed for his dramatic embodiment of Italian opera, but has recently expanded his repertoire with role debuts as Paul Die tote Stadt (Longborough Festival Opera) and Laca Jenufa (Welsh National Opera). He previously sang Cavaradossi for Grange Park Opera, and other Puccini roles in recent seasons include Pinkerton Madama Butterfly (WNO), Roberto Le Villi (Scottish Opera; Holland Park), Des Grieux Manon Lescaut (Grange Festival; OSESP); Johnson La fanciulla del West (RTÉ NSO) and Edgar (Scottish Opera; Konzerthaus Berlin). He recently sang the title role in Franchetti’s rediscovered Asrael at Theater Bonn.
