"There are two means of refuge from the misery of life — music and cats." - Albert Schweitzer

Following his degree in Biochemistry, Christopher Maltman studied singing at the Royal Academy of Music.  A globally-renowned Don Giovanni, he has sung the role in London, Berlin, Munich, Cologne, Salzburg, Amsterdam, Toulouse, San Sebastian, Beijing and Chicago, and adds New York and Edinburgh this year.  Increasingly in demand for Verdi roles, he has sung Posa, Simon Boccanegra, Conte di Luna, Guy de Montfort and will soon add Don Carlo di Vargas, Rigoletto and Germont. He won the Lieder prize at the Cardiff Singer of the World early in his career and has continued to delight audiences with his sensitive and engaging song performances, many of which are documented in acclaimed recordings.  His vast and varied discography, from Purcell to Ades includes John Corigliano’s Grammy award-winning ‘Ghost of Versailles’ from Los Angeles Opera.
