Simon Wilding

Born in Leigh, Lancashire, Simon became the youngest member of the Bayreuth opera festival in 1989, when he made his debut and where he has since regularly returned. On completion of his studies at the Royal Northern College of Music in Britain, he made his debut in the roles of Quince and Snug in two productions of A Midsummer Nights Dream, as well as Geronimo in Il Matrimondio il Segreto, Sir Walter Raleigh Roberto Devereux, and Luka in The Bear which also transferred to Los Angeles at the UK/LA Festival. His Covent Garden debut came shortly after as Foltz in Graham Vick’s Die Meistersinger von Nürnberg under Bernard Haitink and went on to perform the roles of the Cappadocian in Salome under Christoph von Dohnanyi and Der Brabantische Edle in Lohengrin under Valery Gergiev.
