Alexander Knight


Young baritone Alexander Knight is in his first year of an Advanced Diploma of Opera, and is currently studying with Maree Ryan, Chair of Vocal Studies and Opera, at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, having graduated with a Bachelor of Music Performance last year. He has recently performed with many Australian ensembles in venues around NSW and the ACT, including the Penrith Symphony Orchestra and the Sydney University Graduate Choir as a featured soloist, and the Song Company.

In 2011, he was a soloist for the Sydney Symphony Orchestra's opening season performances of Grieg's Peer Gynt under the baton of Vladimir Ashkenazy, and a soloist in Mozart’s Requiem with Manly-Warringah Choir, and also at Christ Church St. Laurence. In the same year, he was a soloist with Coro Innominata for their performance of Bach's Magnificat, and played the principal role of the Gamekeeper in Sydney Chamber Opera's production of Janacek's The Cunning Little Vixen.

Alexander has performed prominent roles in many large productions, including Handel’s Messiah and Saul, Haydn’s Missa Sancti Nicolai and Nelson Mass, Beethoven’s Mass in C and Ninth Symphony, Britten’s Rejoice In The Lamb, Monteverdi’s 1610 Vespers, and Nicolai’s opera Die Lustigen Weiber Von Windsor as a principal artist. He also had the pleasure of performing as soloist in the world premiere of Matthew Orlovich’s Communion of Reparations."
