BIOGRAPHY

Born in New Zealand, the Samoan Jonathan Lemalu earned the prestigious Tagore Gold Medal from the Royal College of Music in London. A joint winner of the Kathleen Ferrier award in 2002, when he also received the award for Young Artist of the Year from the Royal Philharmonic Society, he has performed at international festivals, including the BBC Proms, with conductors such as Sir Colin Davis, Charles Dutoit, Bernard Haitink and Sir Charles Mackerras. He has sung Don Basilio (The Barber of Seville) for English National Opera, Papageno (Die Zauberflöte) for Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Zoroastro (Orlando) and Colline (La bohème) at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the title roles in Saul and Le nozze di Figaro at the Bayerische Staatsoper, Munich, and Leporello (Don Giovanni) and Mozart’s Figaro for Opera Australia. He made his debut at the Metropolitan Opera, New York as Masetto (Don Giovanni) and at Lyric Opera of Chicago as Papageno. Jonathan Lemalu received the Gramophone Debut Artist of the Year award for his recital disc with Roger Vignoles and has subsequently recorded with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra, the pianist Malcolm Martineau, and the Belcea Quartet.
