Alastair Merry made his first singing appearance as first boy in Mozart’s The Magic Flute whilst living in Germany.
Later he studied music at Worcester College, Oxford, became a professional singing lay clerk at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford (1999-2001), and went on to study voice with Laura Sarti at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama (2001-03).
He has sung a number of solo operatic roles including, most recently, the cover of Baritone Solo Voice in Moses und Aron with Welsh National Opera, for which he went on and sang the role in one performance, and the Count in the Marriage of Figaro at the Minack Theatre, Cornwall . Other roles include Masetto in Don Giovanni, Sid in Albert Herring, The Forester in Rusalka and Dancairo in Carmen.
As a professional chorister, Alastair has sung with the choruses of Glyndebourne, Welsh National Opera, and English National Opera, as well as on the concert platform with the BBC Singers and Netherlands Radio Choir. Most recently, Alastair sang in the chorus for Moses und Aron at WNO, and Peter Grimes at ENO, where he will be returning to sing in the chorus for Othello and The Girl of the Golden West.
Alastair is also an active oratorio soloist and recitalist, having recently performed Bach's Johannes Passion (arias and Pilate), Vaughan Williams' Five Mystical Songs, Puccini's Messe di Gloria and Rossini’s Petite Messe Solennelle in concert. He is also one of the twelve professional choirmen of the Temple Church, London.
