Mark Le Brocq held a choral scholarship at St. Catharine’s College, Cambridge where he read English. He studied at the Royal Academy of Music and later continued at the National Opera Studio where he was sponsored by The Friends of English National Opera. Upon completing his studies, Mark became a Company Principal with ENO.
Most recently, Mark made his house debut at the Semperoper Dresden in the role of Mephistopheles/Doktor Faust, sang the role of Howard Boucher/Dead Man Walking at the Barbican Centre with the BBC Symphony Orchestra and Mark Wiggleworth, and returned to WNO to sing Vasily Golitsyn/Khovanshchina, Filka Morozov/From the House of the Dead and Bassanio in André Tchaikowsky’s rediscovered The Merchant of Venice; later reprised at the Royal Opera House as part of WNO’s London Residency.
This season Mark sings Pierre Bezukhov in Welsh National Opera’s upcoming production of Prokofiev’s War & Peace, and will sing Harry King in Anthropocene, a new work by Scottish composer Stuart Macrae with Scottish Opera. On the concert platform Mark joins the BBC Symphony Orchestra to sing Sylvester in Mark-Anthony Turnage’s The Silver Tassie at the Barbican Centre, and Beethoven 9 for a performance in Dubai.
