Born in Mansfield (Missouri), Michael Spyres grew up in a family of musicians, studying in the United States and at the Vienna Conservatoire. He garnered international acclaim in 2008 when he sang the title role of Otello at the Rossini in Wildbad Festival, and joined the chorus of the Deutsche Oper Berlin.

He has performed at Teatro alla Scala, the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden, the Théâtre Royal de la Monnaie, the Aix-en-Provence Festival, the BBC Proms, and in the opera houses of Munich, Zürich, Dresden and Chicago.

He has sung under Riccardo Muti, John Eliot Gardiner, Andrew Davis, Mark Elder, Valery Gergiev, Fabio Luisi, Alberto Zedda and Michele Mariotti.

He recently performed in the title role of La clemenza di Tito (Opéra national de Paris), Vasco de Gama in L’Africaine (Oper Frankfurt), Fernand in La favorite (Liceu Opera Barcelona), the title role in La Damnation de Faust (Angers Nantes Opéra), Dvořák’s Requiem in Prague and Handel’s Il trionfo del Tempo e del Disinganno with the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
