Paul Hopwood

Operatic tenor

Paul Hopwood is a British tenor based in South London.

Paul is a versatile singer/actor, happy in mainstream lyric repertoire, though he has developed a particular reputation for covering contemporary and challenging repertoire. He has sung small roles and covered title roles for companies including Glyndebourne, ENO and the Royal Opera, and has recently made his German debut both as a principal and recitalist at the Göttingen International Handel Festival.

Paul also enjoys a successful career on the concert platform, and has performed as a soloist in venues including the Royal Albert Hall and the London Barbican.

Paul has just finished performing the role of the intriguingly named Melanzane in Jonathan Dove's new opera Marx in London at Scottish opera


Other recent highlights have included covering the title role in Jephtha at the ROH, performing the role of Seleuco in a new production of a work by the baroque composer Stradella with the Barber opera in Birmingham, goosing around with a touring children's opera for the fantastic new company Ignite, and, with Opera Brava, spending an evening in front of the firing squad as Cavaradossi in the incongruously beautiful setting of Rodmarton Manor.


Future plans include his main stage debut at the ROH, now planned for 2025, and concert performances including Bach's Matthew Passion at the London Barbican, and Mozart's Requiem in the Inner Hebrides...
