- Tenor -

Alex studied medicine at the University of Birmingham and worked as a doctor
at the Royal London Hospital before training at the Royal Academy of Music
Opera School until 2019. Since then Alex has performed and understudied lead roles for Garsington Opera,
Hampstead Garden Opera, Opera de Baugé and The Royal Opera House, Covent
Garden. During the Covid pandemic, Alex returned to work as a doctor, but still sang
occasionally for his colleagues – one such occasion was caught on camera & went
viral. Since then Alex, dubbed ‘doctor opera’, has used his many TV appearances
to raise awareness about the importance of the arts, raising money for mental
health, homelessness and NHS staff support in the meantime.
As well as building an opera career, Alex hopes to break genre boundaries and to
spread the message that the transformational power of the arts is for everyone.
