Lauded as ‘one of the UK’s best-loved Tenors’ (Telegraph), James Edwards is an international operatic Tenor whose work encompasses opera, oratorio and recital. His boundless energy and versatility means that he is as much at home on the concert stage or in the recording studio as he is in the theatre.
James was adopted at birth. This brings him a uniquely personal perspective on the psychological turmoil that lies behind so many of the world’s greatest operas. While his upbringing has had a deep emotional impact in his life, he is able to draw positively on his experience, transferring and intensifying his own emotions, to deliver great passion and pathos in his operatic roles.
James continues to perform with the world’s leading orchestras. As a soloist, he has worked with The Royal Opera House Covent Garden, English National Opera, Welsh National Opera Orchestra, Raymond Gubbay Productions, Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Gothenburg Opera, Russian State Symphony Orchestra, Israel Camerata, BBC Symphony Orchestra, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, The Hallé, The Royal Choral Society and the BBC Proms.
