Rising young tenor Anthony Gregory is a recipient of many awards and prizes including the Ian Fleming Award and the Lies Askonas Prize. Acclaimed for his unique timbre, stage presence and musicality, he is already making a name for himself in the Mozart repertoire: “…Anthony Gregory, as Ferrando, sings with confidence and ardour of youth. A Mozart tenor to watch.” (Hugh Canning, Sunday Times, March 2013) He was also featured by esteemed critic Rupert Christiansen as one of the future operatic stars and was the 2015 winner of the Breakthrough Artists category by What’s On Stage.
Currently a Harewood Artist at English National Opera, he was a Jerwood Young Artist for 2010 at Glyndebourne and a trainee of the prestigious National Opera Studio in 2011/12.
In 2016/17, Gregory returns to Glyndebourne to sing Don Ottavio for their tour production of Don Giovanni and Vafrino Hipermestra which will open the festival season in 2017. Gregory also returns to English National Opera to premiere The Winter’s Tale, a new work by composer-in-residence Ryan Wigglesworth.
His recent engagements include Peter Quint and Prologue The Turn of the Screw for Glyndebourne on Tour, Shepherd L’Orfeo for Royal Opera House, Ferrando Così fan tutte for Opéra de Limoges and English Touring Opera. He played Oronte in a new Katie Mitchell production of Alcina for Aix en Provence Festival; Edward Milfort Il cambiale matrimonio for Aix en Provence; Tamino Die Zauberflöte at Nevill Holt Opera, Almaviva Il barbiere di Siviglia with the Verbier Festival Academy, where he also appeared in concert performances of Beethoven’s Choral Fantasy under Charles Dutoit, as Roderigo Otello alongside Anna Netrebko and Aleksandr Antonenko under the baton of Valery Gergiev and as Agenore in an acclaimed performance of Il Re Pastore; include Lucio Silla for the Classical Opera Company; and Grimoaldo Rodelinda at the London Handel Festival conducted by Laurence Cummings. At English National Opera he was heard in recent seasons as Young Sailor Julietta, 1st Armed Man Die Zauberflöte, Borsa Rigoletto and Haemon Thebans.
Last season Gregory made his debut with Teatro Real as Oronte and was heard as Nanki-poo The Mikado at English National Opera and as Flute in Peter Hall’s acclaimed production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream at the Glyndebourne Festival.
On the concert platform he was recently heard in Bach’s Mass in B Minor with Ludus Baroque at the Edinburgh International Festival, Mozart Requiem with Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, St John Passion with the Oxford Bach Choir and a concert of arias at the prestigious Lufthansa Baroque Festival.

Anthony Gregory, as the stranger from Corinth, a promising rising young tenor, performed close to perfection.
Anthony Gregory's Quint, younger and handsomer than most, sounds disquietingly beautiful.
Hugh Canning, Sunday Times
…Anthony Gregory, as Ferrando, sings two out of his three [arias] with confidence and ardour of youth. A Mozart tenor to watch.
