Baritone Simon Keenlyside is a rarity in an era of focus on specific repertoires: a real operatic generalist whose interests and expertise range from the very earliest - L'Orfeo - to the newest - premieres of Adès' The Tempest and Maazel's 1984. Tales of Opera is limited to just a fraction of that span, from the late eighteenth to the very early twentieth centuries

Sir Simon Keenlyside CBE (born 3 August 1959) is a British baritone who has had an active international career performing in operas and concerts since the mid-1980s. Keenlyside was born in London, the son of Raymond and Ann Keenlyside. Raymond played second violin in the Aeolian Quartet, and Ann's father was the violinist Leonard Hirsch. Keenlyside read zoology at Cambridge University, returning to St John's as a choral scholar, before studying singing at the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester. After graduation, he won a Peter Moores Foundation scholarship (1985) and chose to join the Royal Northern College of Music to study voice with the baritone John Cameron under whom he developed a love for lieder and German poetry. Keenlyside later said of him: Everyone has to trust a teacher and I trusted John. It is possible to make the Faustian pact of beefing up your voice young.

Both his father and his grandfather were professional violinists; Raymond played second violin in the Aeolian Quartet. Where other children would have nursery rhymes, I’d go to bed to the sounds of Haydn, Mozart and Schubert. If you sang as a boy you got picked on. It was lucky for me that I was sporty and athletic.
