The story of Gilbert and Sullivan

Peter Gravatt

Born in Hastings, accomplished baritone Peter studied theology and philosophy at King’s College London. He then went on to study voice with Jean Austin Dodson and Derek Hammond-Stroud of the Royal Academy of Music. Peter then trained with Michael Maurel before singing for a while in Florence with the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino and touring with the British Youth Opera.

Peter made his professional debut with the London Opera Players as the title character of Mozart’s Marriage of Figaro. He quickly added Malatesta in Donizetti’s Don Pasquale at Holland Park and Pish-Tush in Gilbert and Sullivan’s The Mikado with the D’Oyly Carte. To date, he has belted out 80 operatic roles and 60 oratorios! His talent, experience and exuberance are sure to add an extra dimension to your evening.
