Hailed by the New York Times for his “robust singing” and Opera News for his “exquisite vocal beauty,” GRAMMY Award–winning Canadian baritone Elliot Madore has established himself as an international artist in demand at the leading opera houses and orchestras of the world. The 2022–23 season sees his return to the Los Angeles Philharmonic to sing Ramón in a semi-staged production of John Adams’s Girls of the Golden West, as well as his much anticipated debut with the Toronto Symphony Orchestra to sing Messiah under the direction of music director Gustavo Gimeno. Elliot also sings the baritone soloist in Carmina Burana in a special co-presentation by the Hong Kong Philharmonic and the Hong Kong Ballet, as well as with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra conducted by Osmo Vänskä, the New World Symphony Orchestra conducted by Patrick Dupré Quigley, and the Oregon Symphony Orchestra conducted by Leo Hussain. He also makes his debut with the Kalamazoo Symphony in Brahms’s Requiem. This season Elliot also continues his position as a performing Associate Professor of Voice with the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music faculty.
The 2021–22 season saw Elliot’s house debut in the world premiere of Giorgio Battistelli’s new opera Julius Caesar with Teatro dell’Opera di Roma, directed by Robert Carsen and conducted by Daniele Gatti. He also made his role debut as Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus with the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy in Japan. Orchestral work includes Carmina Burana with the Los Angeles Philharmonic at the Hollywood Bowl, conducted by music director Gustavo Dudamel, and Messiah with the U.S. Naval Academy.
