Michael Vincent Jones
Manchester born tenor Michael Vincent Jones recently completed his MMus at the Royal Northern College of Music under the tutelage of Mary Plazas, which was kindly supported by the Richard Newitt Fund.
In 2018 Michael premiered the role of Dieter in Adam Gorb’s The Path to Heaven and performed the role of Lurcher in Cellier’s Dorothy on a recording with Victorian Opera under the baton of Richard Bonynge. He has performed with the National Gilbert and Sullivan Opera Company for three seasons; appearing as Ralph Rackstraw in HMS Pinafore, and covering the roles of Frederic in Pirates of Penzance, Nanki-poo in The Mikado, and Lord Tolloller in Iolanthe, as well as performing as part of the chorus. He is a 2016 Iford Arts New Generation Artist and is also a member of the Opera North Shadowing scheme, which saw him shadow the role of Don Ottavio for their 2018 production of Mozart’s Don Giovanni.
Michael is excited to be premiering the role of Hephaestus in Tim Benjamin’s The Fire of Olympus with Radius Opera. This is his debut with Northern Opera Group
