Gerald Finley, an internationally renowned Canadian bass-baritone, is one of the leading singers and dramatic interpreters of his generation, with award‐winning performances and recordings on CD and DVD with major labels and performing at the world’s major opera and concert venues in a wide variety of repertoire.

His recent awards include Best Solo Vocal Recording 2008, for his disk of Songs by Samuel Barber, at the Classic FM Gramophone Awards. This follows the Editor’s Choice Award at the 2006 Classic FM Gramophone Awards. His active relationship with leading conductors including Nikolaus Harnoncourt, Sir Simon Rattle, Bernard Haitink, Alan Gilbert and Antonio Pappano has been part of a flourishing career. As a recitalist, he works regularly with Julius Drake, appearing throughout Europe and North America.

In contemporary opera, Mr. Finley has excelled in creating leading roles, most notably J. Robert Oppenheimer in John Adam’s Doctor Atomic (New York Met, ENO London, San Francisco, Chicago and Amsterdam). And this past season, at the Metropolitan Opera, Mr. Finley reprised his much acclaimed portrayal of J. Robert Oppenheimer in a new production of Doctor Atomic, which was premiered at the San Francisco opera.
