Roderick Williams (baritone)

Roderick Williams is one of the most sought-after baritones of his generation, with a wide repertoire spanning Baroque to contemporary works, which he performs in opera, concert and recital.

He enjoys relationships with all the major UK opera houses, and has sung opera premieres by David Sawer, Sally Beamish, Michel van der Aa, Robert Saxton and Alexander Knaifel, as well as roles including Papageno, Don Alfonso, Onegin and Billy Budd.

He performs regularly with leading conductors and orchestras throughout the UK, Europe, North America and Australia, and his many festival appearances include the BBC Proms, Edinburgh, Cheltenham, Aldeburgh and Melbourne.

As a composer he has had works premiered at Wigmore Hall, the Barbican, the Purcell Room and on national radio. In December 2016, he won the prize for Best Choral Composition at the British Composer Awards.

Roderick Williams was awarded an OBE in June 2017, and was nominated for Outstanding Achievement in Opera in both the 2018 Olivier Awards for his performance in the title role of the Royal Opera House production of Monteverdi’s Il ritorno d’Ulisse in patria, and in 2019 for his role in ENO’s production of Britten’s War Requiem.
