Bio

Mark Crayton made his Seattle Opera debut as Tolomeo in Handel’s Giulio Cesare in Egitto. In 2006, he sang Nireno in Giulio Cesare in Egitto for San Diego Opera. The role of First Minstrel in Peter Onnes’ Pantagruel et Gargantua, performed at the Holland Festival, was written for him, as was the role of Autumn Oracle in Philip Glass’s Galileo Galilei. At the latter’s 2002/03 world premieres in Chicago, London, and New York, he also sang the roles of Cardinal and Inquisitor. Winner in 2004 of first prize in the inaugural USA Classical Singer Vocal Competition (in which he performed an aria from Giulio Cesare), Crayton sang Bacchus in the premiere of Alexander Goehr’s Arianna for Opera Theatre of Saint Louis, and Amore in Monteverdi’s Incoronazione di Poppea and Ericlea in his Ritorno d’Ulisse in patria with Music of the Baroque. Recent performances include concerts in New York, London, and Amsterdam, and Bitter Tears with the San Francisco Ballet.
