Luis Gomes

Tenor from Portugal - 32 years old

I am now based in London, where I graduated from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in 2012. I am a Samling Artist and a Solti Accademia Scholar and was a member of the National Opera Studio and the Jette Parker Young Artist Programme. In the 2018 Operalia Competition I was awarded both the Don Plácido Domingo Ferrer Zarzuela Prize and the Audience Prize.

Opera highlights include Alfredo (La traviata) for Glyndebourne Touring and in Lisbon; Rinuccio (Gianni Schicchi) for Dias da Música Festival; Rodolfo (La bohème) and Azael (L’enfant prodigue) for Scottish Opera; Beppe (Pagliacci), Edmondo (Manon Lescaut), Fenton (Falstaff) and Chevalier de la Force (Les dialogues des Carmélites) for the Royal Opera House; Osburgo (La straniera) at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam; Don Ottavio (Don Giovanni) and Nemorino (L’elisir d’amore) in Trieste; Tebaldo (I Capuleti e I Montecchi ) for Buxton and Rodolfo (La bohème) in Verbier. I also appeared at the ROH in La traviata, Il trittico, Parsifal, Turandot, Rigoletto and Il Turco in Italia.

My concert appearances include the Wigmore Hall Rosenblatt recital series, Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle in Rotterdam and in Rome under Sir Antonio Pappano. I recently featured on the recording ‘Decades – A Century of Song’ with Malcolm Martineau.

As for hobbies, I like spending time with my friends and family, playing football, dancing and cooking.
