Other roles of the previous seasons include The Footman in Barber‘s Vanessa at the 2018 Glyndebourne Festival, where he also covered the role of Conte d’Almaviva in Le nozze di Figaro, Commissionario in La traviata for Glyndebourne on Tour, Eolo in La fida Ninfa for the Lithuanian Baroque Opera Theater, Lockit in The Beggar’s Opera and Antenor in Dardanus with the European Opera Centre, Valens in Theodora with the Sacred Opera Berlin, Mr. X in Kalman’s Zirkusprinzessin with the State Music Theatre in Klaipėda (Lithuania), Bill in Aufstieg und Fall der Stadt Mahagonny with the Hamburger Symphoniker, and Elviro in Serse for Lithuanian Music and Theatre Academy.

In the Oratorio repertoire Mr. Kudriašovas has recently sung the bass solo in Bach’s Magnificat at Laeiszhalle in Hamburg with the Hamburger Symphoniker, conducted by Sir Roger Norrington.

Mr. Kudriašovas has given recitals and solo concerts throughout Germany and the UK, at the Royal Opera House in Oman, Teatro Vittoria in Turin with Coin du Roi baroque orchestra, as well as in his home country of Lithuania, where he frequently performs at the National Philharmonic Halls of Vilnius and Kaunas.

Romanas Kudriašovas studied singing at the Music and Theatre Academy in Lithuania, Hochschule für Musik und Theater in Hamburg, the Wales International Academy of Voice with Dennis O’Neill and Nuccia Focile and at the London National Opera Studio. Supplementing his education, he has trained at the Georg Solti Bel Canto Academy with Leo Nucci, Barbara Frittoli, and Richard Bonynge, as well as taking masterclasses with Dame Kiri Te Kanawa.
