Winner of the 2018 Royal Philharmonic Society Singer Award and a former BBC New Generation Artist, British tenor Allan Clayton has quickly established himself as one of the most exciting and sought after singers of his generation. He regularly performs at the world’s foremost opera houses, from the Royal Opera House and English National Opera to the Komische Oper Berlin, Teatro Real Madrid, Dutch National Opera and Opéra Comique in Paris, and at opera festivals such as Glyndebourne and Aix-en-Provence.
Allan Clayton’s 2019/20 season includes the reprisal of the title role in Brett Dean’s opera Hamlet for the work's Dutch premiere at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw alongside Radio Filharmonisch Orkest and Markus Stenz. He will also return to the Royal Opera House for his debut in Jenůfa, the theatre’s first production of the work since 2001, and make his Teatro alla Scala debut with L’enfance du Christ alongside Filarmonica della Scala and Sir John Eliot Gardiner.
On the concert platform, Allan Clayton performs regularly with the UK’s leading orchestras such as London Symphony, Philharmonia, BBC Symphony and City of Birmingham Symphony orchestras. In 2019/20 he will both revisit works he is closely associated with, including Britten’s War Requiem with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, and continue to explore new repertoire such as Berlioz’s Damnation de Faust. Clayton is also a leading artist in Wigmore Hall’s season-long Britten Series.
