Laurence Panter, British tenor, has previously worked with Longborough Festival Opera in productions of Handel (Rinaldo, Serse), Donizetti (Anna Bolena, Don Pasquale), Monteverdi (L’incoronazione di Poppea) and Wagner (Der fliegende Hollander). He has also worked with Opera Northern Ireland, Kings Head Theatre, and L’Offerta Musicale di Venezia amongst other companies. Fully staged roles have included Acis/Acis & Galatea, Ferrando/Così fan tutte, Rodolfo/La bohème and Inkslinger/Paul Bunyan. Later this year, he is due to work with Barefoot Opera, creating the role of ‘Mervyn’ in Orlando Gough’s community opera Bloom Britannia. In early 2020, Laurence sang the part of Satyavan in Holst’s Savitri, conducted by Alistair Dawes, musically directed a touring production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni from the piano with Merry Opera Co, and started production rehearsals for the role of Steuerman in Wagner’s Der fliegende Hollander before theatres closed. Since then, Laurence has sung with Rogue Opera for remote performances, musically directed and sung for The Connections Project – a series of oratorio-inspired music videos directed by Lysanne van Overbeek – and learned a quantity of song repertoire to keep busy. He read music at Cambridge and has an MMus in singing from Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
