Jack Roberts, Tenor
“The epitome of an emerging talent”
- Opera Magazine
Possessing a tenor voice described as 'crystal clear' and 'exceptional', Jack Roberts is a young tenor, fresh out of The Guildhall School of Music and Drama and rapidly building a portfolio of performing experience in professional opera and operetta. At college he won the Joyce Budd Second Prize in the Kathleen Ferrier Bursary for Young Singers and went on to graduate with a 1st Class Honours in classical voice.
Last summer, Jack was engaged to sing Lensky in Opera Holland Park's Young Artists' production of Eugine Onegin followed by touring the UK in the Gilbert and Sullivan National Tour in HMS Pinafore and Pirates of Penzance, as Ralph Rackstraw and Frederic respectively. Fortunately, he has managed to replace these engagements with a fantastic open air production of Savitri with Hampstead Garden Opera, in which he played Satyavan.
Gothic Opera triumphs with the UK premiere of Gounod’s opera La Nonne sanglante (The Bloody Nun). With a libretto based on The Monk by Matthew Lewis, the opera has been only twice revived since its creation in 1854. Directed Franciska Éry.
Having been described as a "terrific young tenor" (Robert Thicknesse, Opera Now), Jack was a finalist in the 2022 Off West End Theatre Award for performance in an opera production for his portrayal of Rodolphe.
