Canadian Grammy Award-winning baritone Elliot Madore has established himself as one of the most sought-after, accomplished singers of his generation, enthralling audiences around the world with his “robust singing and take-no-prisoners acting” (the New York Times), “exquisite vocal beauty” (Opera News) and “movie-star good looks” (Merkur). Madore’s career spans the past decade, singing in major opera companies and orchestras throughout Europe, the United States and Canada.
The 2021-2022 season brought Madore’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. Madore made his role debut as Dr. Falke in Die Fledermaus with the Seiji Ozawa Music Academy in Japan. Orchestral work includes Handel’s Messiah with the U.S. Naval Academy Orchestra and Orff’s Carmina burana with the Santa Cruz Symphony, conducted by Daniel Stewart. Madore joined the Cincinnati Conservatory of Music faculty in a newly created position as a performing associate professor of voice.
In addition to the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, Madore was the recipient of the 2010 George London Award for a Canadian singer from the George London Foundation, a finalist in the 2010 Eleanor McCollum Competition for Young Singers in Houston and the recipient of the ARIAS Emerging Young Artist Award from Opera Canada. He also won the 2009 Palm Beach Vocal Competition. Madore is a graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music, where he studied with Marlena Malas.
