Alexander Anderson-Hall is an experienced, freelance operatic tenor, living and working mainly in the UK and France. After leaving the Royal College of Music in London, he immediately gained the attention of a wider public as a young artist at Scottish Opera, where he made his debut singing a number of roles including Flavio in Norma, The Peacock in Param Vir’s Broken Strings, John Millar Jnr. for the World premiere of David Horne’s A Friend of the People and Janek in The Makropoulos Case. Since then, his acknowledged dramatic and vocal versatility has afforded him a career that has taken him around the world, with critically acclaimed performances in numerous roles ranging from early opera, through Mozart, Rossini, and Bel Canto to contemporary repertoire.
In 2010-2011 he was enrolled by English National Opera on the Opera Works programme where he continued to refine and hone his skills as an operatic artist. His technical studies continue with Phil Doghan.
