In a career spanning forty years, the Scottish countertenor Christopher Robson has made a unique contribution to the world of concerts, opera, and music-theatre. His early years as a young session singer and concert and opera soloist culminated in his 1981 début for English National Opera in Monteverdi’s L’Orfeo, and over the following three decades he won wide acclaim for his many performances at the ENO. In 1994 he made his début with the Bayerische Staatsoper Munich in Handel’s Giulio Cesare. Once again he created a unique artistic niche for himself, provoking praise and sometimes controversy in ten productions over thirteen years. He has performed worldwide, including countless radio and television appearances, and has a distinguished discography. He has also created many rôles specially written for him. In 1997 and 2002 he was awarded the Münchener Opernfestspiel Prize (the only person to have received the award twice), and in 2003 the Bavarian State honoured him with the title Bayerischer Kammersänger.
