Welcome to the online home of Robert-John Edwards, an East-Midlands based Character Baritone whose roles vary from Benoit and Alcindoro in La Boheme, to any of the Bass/Baritone roles in Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro, to Scarpia in Tosca.
Robert-John has been a regular performer at the Buxton Opera Festival for the past 3 seasons performing in such operas as Tobias and the Angel, Samson, Der Wildschütz, Lucrezia Borgia, Veronique and Die Hochzeit der Camacho. He is also regularly engaged as a Bass soloist in Oratorios by choral societies.
Since completing his post-graduate studies at the Birmingham Conservatoire he has also sung for Carl Rosa Opera and Stanley Hall Opera. He has studied with Henry Herford and Arwel Traherne Morgan and has received personal coaching from Rae Woodland, Maree Ryan, Donald Maxwell, Lionel Friend, Stephen Barlow, Christoph Ritter and Helen Yorke. He now studies with Alan Adams in London.
"Robert-John Edwards [gives] cleverly judged accounts of Benoit and Alcindoro, the two most put upon men in all of opera."
George Hall for Opera Now. Click here for full review.
“In Tosca, time-shifted to Fascist Italy…Robert-John Edwards was a seriously dominating Scarpia with commendably clear diction and appropriate colouring.”
