Peter Edge


Shropshire baritone Peter Edge graduated from the Royal College of Music, London, as a Master of Music in Vocal Performance with Distinction, where he was supported by the Walker Trust and tutored by Peter Savidge. Recent competition successes include winning the Christopher Ball First Prize in the John Kerr Award for English Song, the International Medal at the Llangollen International Eisteddfod and the Chris Treglown Memorial Award.

Peter enjoyed performing his second season as a principal artist with English Touring Opera this spring; covering the role of Curio in Handel’s Giulio Cesare, and performing the roles of Petrucci in Donizetti’s Lucrezia Borgia, Gelsomino in Rossini’s Il viaggio a Reims and the title role in Mosley’s The Wish Gatherer. As a regular bass in the Monteverdi Choir, Peter has appeared in concerts at the Amsterdam Het Concertgebouw, Barcelona Palau de la Música, Berlin Philharmonie, London BBC Proms, Royal Albert Hall and St Martin-in-the- Fields, Luxembourg Philharmonie, Salzburger Festspiele and Zurich Tonhalle. Peter is looking forward to performing Berlioz’s Les Troyens on a European tour and Bach’s B Minor Mass on an American and Canadian tour with the Monteverdi Choir later this year.

Peter is kindly supported by Opera Prelude.
