Christopher Ventris

Since his debuts in Glyndebourne, at the Opera North and at the English National Opera, CHRISTOPHER VENTRIS is amongst the leading tenors of his field. In recent years, he focused his career on Wagner roles such as Parsifal, Siegmund, Lohengrin and Erik.

Current engagements of the Tenor include among others Siegmund in Bayreuth, Parsifal in Buenos Aires, Peter Grimes in Berlin and Max in London. At the Wiener Staatsoper, Christopher Ventris also sang, aside from Parsifal, Siegmund, Andrei Chowanski, Jim Mahoney (Mahagonny).
