Robert Williams - Baritone, English Touring Opera

Robert Williams

Australian-born baritone Robert D Williams, studied a Bachelor of Music (Voice Performance) at the University of Southern Queensland, Australia.

Following completion of his degree, Robert moved to Brisbane, Australia and joined Opera Queensland.

During the five years Robert spent with Opera Queensland, he became an integral member of the company, performing in many productions including La traviata, Il Trovatore, and Les Pecheur de Perles.

Robert's desire to expand his performance opportunities led him to England in September 2002 where he has Indefinite Leave to Remain.

Since this time, Robert has been studying privately with well-known English baritone Russell Smythe, in addition to working with UK-based opera companies and choirs.

This work includes principal roles with Buxton Festival Opera, Stowe Opera and London Opera Players. Robert has also travelled throughout Europe performing with The Academy of St Martin in the Fields under the direction of Sir Neville Marriner.

Testimony to the quality of Robert's vocal abilities and reliability are the subsequent invitations to perform with opera companies and choirs on multiple occassions.

In July 2006, Robert made a highly acclaimed debut at the Buxton Festival Opera performing in Bizet's The Fair Maid of Perth.

Robert returned to the Buxton Festival company in 2007 and has also been invited back for the 2008 festival. Similarly, Robert has recently completed a second spring season with English Touring Opera.

In addition to performing as a soloist on both the opera and concert platforms, Robert enjoys performing at recitals, conventions and weddings throughout the United Kingdom with Cantabile Artists, Operadagio and The Singing Servers.
