Jake Arditti has had a meteoric rise to fame since his prize-winning performance at the 2012 Innsbruck Baroque Singing Competition.
His "... show-stealing riches of vocal colour and stage presence" (Daily Telegraph), have already brought him widespread critical and public acclaim, not only in such baroque virtuoso warhorses as Handel's Rinaldo (Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow), Serse (title-role at Longborough Festival Opera), Riccardo Primo (title-role at the London Handel Festival), Sesto (Teatro Colón) and Nireno (ENO) in Giulio Cesare, Guido in Flavio (English Touring Opera) and Narciso in Agrippina (Opera Vlaanderen), but such rarities as Emone in Traetta's Antigone (Wiener Kammeroper) and Euripilo‚ La Discordia and Polluce in Cavalli's Elena (Festival d'Aix en Provence, Lille and Lisbon).
In English Baroque repertoire he has performed the Spirit in Purcell's Dido and Aeneas and Cupid in Blow's Venus and Adonis, both for Innsbruck, while the Guardian described his Othniel (Handel's Joshua)for Opera North as "outstanding".Romantic and modern rolesinclude Hansel in Humperdinck's Hansel und Gretel (Wiener Kammeroper), Voice of Apollo in Death in Venice (Stuttgart), and Prince Gogo in Ligeti's Le grand macabre (Essen). His extended vocal range has also seen him encompass such roles as Amore in Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea (Theater an der Wien) and Handel's soprano take on Nerone in Agrippina (Theater an der Wien, Göttingen Handel Festival and English Touring Opera).
Future plans include Nero in Monteverdi's L'incoronazione di Poppea for Pinchgut Opera, Sydney, David in Handel's Saul at the Theater an der Wien, and Amore/Primo Familiare in L'incoronazione di Poppea for Opera Zürich.
