Kostas Smoriginas (bass-baritone)

Kostas Smoriginas (bass-baritone) studied at the Lithuanian Music and Theater Academy from an early age. After moving to London in 2005 and representing his country in the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Competition, he spent two years at the Royal College of Music, before joining the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden (London) in 2007. During this time his roles included Alidoro (La Cenerentola), Marquis d’Obigny (La Traviata), Angelotti (Tosca), Smirnov (The Bear), Schlemil (Les Contes d’Hoffmann), and Mandarin (Turandot). He made his US debut as Figaro (Le nozze di Figaro) at Washington National Opera, a role later repeated at San Francisco Opera. He has also appeared at the Berlin Staatsoper as Escamillo in Carmen; at Teatro alla Scala, Milan, as Masetto (Don Giovanni); at Opéra National de Bordeaux as Leporello (Don Giovanni); and returned to the Royal Opera House as Colline (La bohème). Equally at home on the concert platform, his repertoire includes the Requiems of Verdi, Mozart, and Fauré, Händel’s Messiah, Bach’s Magnificat, Mendelssohn’s Elijah, and Janáček’s Glagolitic Mass. He won rave reviews for his BBC Proms debut in Stravinsky’s Les Noces under the baton of Edward Gardner.
