Michael Spyres


Michael Spyres was born in Mansfield, Missouri in 1980 and studied in the US (initially training as a baritone) and Vienna, where he sang with the Arnold Schoenberg Choir; his breakthrough role was in Rossini’s La Gazzetta at the Bad Wildbad Festival in 2007, followed by the same composer’s Otello the next year. Endowed with an almost baritonal timbre coupled with a powerful extreme high register, he is now in great demand for the high-lying roles of nineteenth-century French repertoire as well as for Italian bel canto, with repertoire including Berlioz’s Benvenuto Cellini and Faust, Gounod’s Faust and Rodolphe in La nonne sanglante, Offenbach’s Hoffmann and Donizetti’s Fernand (La favorite) as well as Rossini’s Count Almaviva (Il barbiere di Siviglia), Arnold (Guillaume Tell) and Don Ramiro (La cenerentola).
