Christopher Ainslie appeared with Classical Opera in the title role of the Royal Opera’s production of Arne’s Artaxerxes and in our subsequent recording of the work, as Zephyrus in our recording of Mozart’s Apollo et Hyacinthus, and in concert at Wigmore Hall. Christopher has rapidly established himself as a leading interpreter of the countertenor repertoire, and highlights on the opera stage include Innocent 4 (Birtwistle’s The Minotaur) at the Royal Opera House, Ottone (L’incoronazione di Poppea) and Eustazio (Rinaldo) at Glyndebourne, Voice of Apollo (Death in Venice) for Opéra de Lyon, Ottone (Poppea) at Drottningholm, the title role in Tamerlano at the Göttingen Handel Festival, and Oberon (A Midsummer Night’s Dream), Voice of Apollo and Ottone for Opera North.
