About

Hailing from Mansfield, Missouri, Michael Spyres originally intended to pursue a career in musicals before turning to opera. He comes from a family of musicians, who run an opera company in Springfield, MO, and after studying in the US, travelled to Europe to complete his studies in Vienna. He has rapidly established a formidable reputation for his sensitive singing and astonishing vocal range, with leading roles at the Royal Opera House Covent Garden, Lyric Theatre Chicago, Opéra de Paris and Aix-en-Provence Festival. Earlier in 2017, he appeared as Don José in Carmen in Paris and sang Enée, opposite Joyce DiDonato in Berlioz’s Les Troyens in Strasbourg.

Michael starred on the Opera Rara recording of Donizetti’s Les Martyrs, which received a string of awards including Opera Recording of the Year at the International Opera Awards in 2016. He returned to Opera Rara to record Le Duc d’Albe and we are thrilled to release his solo recital, featuring 19th-century repertoire synonymous with the tenor-of-his-day, Gilbert-Louis Duprez. The album includes arias in French and Italian by Donizetti, Berlioz, Verdi and Rossini, as well as a duet with Joyce El-Khoury.
