Baritone Geoffrey Sirett continues to impress musicians and audiences in debut performances in opera, concert and recital repertoire. A native of Kingston, Ontario, Geoffrey has emerged as one of Canada’s finest young baritones, highly sought-after across the country for a wide range of repertoire.
His charisma as an actor and a singer make him an ideal choice for the leading role in the world premiere of OVERCOAT, a musical version of the stage hit presented by Vancouver Opera, Canstage and Tapestry in the winter of 2018. This season, Geoffrey also looks forward to his debut on the Four Seasons Centre stage in the Canadian Opera Company productions of ARABELLA and the role of Captain Corcoran in Edmonton Opera’s H.M.S PINAFORE.
Geoffrey is a graduate of the University of Toronto where he completed a Master’s in Music (Opera). He is the winner of awards and prizes from a number of competitions including the Canadian Conservatory Vocal Competition, Ottawa Choral Society Competition, Czech and Slovak International Voice Competition, Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, and he received 2nd place and the “Best Performance of a Canadian Work” Award in the Orchestre Symphonique de Montréal Competition. He is a five-time grant recipient of the Jacqueline Desmarais Foundation, and winner of the Vancouver Opera Guild Career Development Grant.
Collaborating with pianist Stephen Ralls, his first solo album Vagabond is a disc devoted to the works of Vaughan Williams, Butterworth, and Britten as well as premiere recordings of Canadian composers Ivan Barbotin and Jocelyn Morlock. Additional recordings include Airline Icarus (Naxos: opera by Brian Current), The Heart’s Refuge (Analekta: Theatre of Early Music) and The Vale of Tears (Analekta: Theatre of Early Music).
