Tom Randle began early studies in conducting and composition, but a scholarship to study voice soon meant a change in career direction. He made his debut with the English National Opera as Tamino in The Magic Flute and has repeated the role with great success at Deutsche Oper Berlin, Glyndebourne Festival Opera, Hamburg, New Zealand, and the Covent Garden Festival, swiftly followed by his Royal Opera House debut in 1994 as Essex in Gloriana with Phyllida Lloyd and Opera North, a production later released as a feature film for BBC Television. He made his Royal Opera debut in 1997 as Johnny Inkslinger in Paul Bunyan and has since sung Fool in Gawain and Macheath in The Beggar’s Opera for the Royal Opera and Song of the Earth for the Royal Ballet.
Mr. Randle devotes equal time to an active concert career, singing with many of the world’s leading orchestras including the Boston and Chicago symphonies, Los Angeles Philharmonic, London Symphony, Philharmonic and Philharmonia orchestras, the Israel Philharmonic, Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, and the English Concert with conductors including Daniel Barenboim, Michael Tilson Thomas, Sir Colin Davis, Myung-Whung Chung, Yan-Pascal Tortelier, Ghennadi Rozhdestvensky, Richard Hickox, Harry Christophers, Trevor Pinnock, and Ivan Fischer. Engagements for the 2017-18 season include Malatestino dall’Occhio in Francesca da Rimini for Opéra National du Rhin.
