John Stainsby, Baritone

Jon Stainsby was a choral and academic scholar at Caius College, Cambridge, and completed a doctorate in English literature at the University of Oxford, before studying with Scott Johnson at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland’s Alexander Gibson Opera School. At the RCS he took principal roles in operas by Britten and Otto Nicolai, and in two co-productions with Scottish Opera: as Father Augustine in Prokofiev Betrothal in a Monastery, and Demetrius in Britten A Midsummer Night's Dream.

Since graduating from the RCS in 2013 he has sung Sid (Britten Albert Herring) and Count Almaviva (The Marriage of Figaro), both for Hampstead Garden Opera and Don Alfonso (Mozart Cosi fan tutte, Pavilion Opera). He has worked extensively in the field of contemporary opera, creating the roles of The Director in Edward Lambert’s new chamber opera Six Characters in Search of a Stage and Botney in Tim Benjamin's Madame X, took the baritone role in Claude Vivier Kopernikus for Dutch National Opera, and performed in the new sound installation The Hand that Takes, with music by Cheryl Frances-Hoad, at Cambridge Junction.

He has been a Britten Pears Young Artist three times, and has participated in Graham Johnson’s Young Songmakers Programme; his work as a recitalist has included a performance of songs by Schubert and Kilpinen with Malcolm Martineau at the RCS, and a solo recital at Steinway Hall for the Delius Society, following their award to him of the 2012 Delius Prize. He also appears regularly as a consort singer and soloist with ensembles including Dunedin Consort, the Academy of Ancient Music, the Balthasar Neumann Chor and EXAUDI.
