Ricardo Panela

Born in 5Aveiro – Portugal, Ricardo has distinguished himself for his interpretation of the florid baritone Bel Canto roles, deemed ‘beguilingly sonorous’, ‘a technical tour-de-force’ and ‘mesmerising’ by different music publications. Currently focusing on the lyric baritone repertoire, Ricardo recently made his debut at the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos in Lisbon in LES  DIALOGUES DES CARMELITES, directed by Luís Miguel Cintra and also sang the role of Masetto DON GIOVANNI with Opera Holland Park, London. Upcoming roles include Le fauteuil/L’arbre LES ENFANT ET LES SORTILEGES at the Teatro Nacional de São Carlos and the title-role in Noah Mosley’s MAD KING SUIBHNE at English National Opera’s Lilian Baylis House.Previous career highlights have included the London premieres of Saverio Mercadante’s DON CHISCIOTTE  at Leighton House Museum and of Federico Ruiz’s LOS MARTIRIOS DE COLON at the Southbank Centre. Equally at home in Opera, Oratorio and Recital, Ricardo has also performed with for Wexford Festival Opera, Longborough Festival Opera and Casa da Música – Porto, under the baton of conductors including Jeremy Silver, Andrew Bisantz, Jean Sébastien-Berau or Jean-Luc Tingaud.
