I am very grateful to Audition Oracle for awarding me the first Singers’ Preparation Award of 2018, ahead of my debut later this year with Opera Holland Park London as part of their Young Artist Programme. I am also thrilled to announce that this Autumn I will be joining the Britten-Pears Young Artist Programme exploring Wolf Lieder.
I am happy to announce that I have been selected to be a 2018 Young Artist at Opera Holland Park London, performing and covering the role of Marchese d’Obigny in La Traviata this summer.
Before then, I am looking forward to a handful of concerts: Beethoven and Dvorak in February with Penshurst Choral Society, and Rossini Petite Messe Solennelle in March with The University of Plymouth Choral Society. In March and April I will be singing bass solos as part of Handel Messiah (staged) with the Merry Opera Company and directed by John Ramster.
Please see SCHEDULE for more details.

I am very excited to announce that I will be performing the title role in Tchaikovsky’s Eugene Onegin for OperaUpClose, in a brand new English translation at the Arcola Theatre, London this November & December. Since the opera is double cast, please see Schedule for performance dates and times.
“Impressive singing – The entire cast deliver the partially updated rhyming translation with crisp clarity… Felix Kemp an unusually classy Masetto, phrased with elegance.”
The Stage ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
“Don Giovanni had strong singing all round… Felix Kemp (Masetto) stood out.”
“There’s great confidence and glamour to the singing… There’s solid support from Felix Kemp’s Masetto.”
The Times ⭐️⭐️⭐️
“One of the stars for me was one of the smaller roles – Masetto, played by Felix Kemp who brought strength, gravitas and an interesting vulnerability to the role.”
The Stuart Review
“Felix Kemp was a strong and characterful Masetto.”
