"Olsworth-Peter sounds superb from the outset. He has super comic timing and revels in wearing disguises." Lauren Rogers, Great Yarmouth Mercury February 2015

‘Lawrence Olsworth-Peter ballsed it out manfully in the stratospheric role of Achante.’ ​Robert Thicknesse, Opera Now June 2012

‘Lawrence Olsworth-Peter, the Achante, deployed his lyric tenor in some gracefu​lly shaped phrases.’ ​Andrew Porter, Opera Magazine April 2012

Recent Operatic highlights have included; extensive European tours as Gaston/ La traviata with Diva Opera; Acis/Acis & Galatea with Rosentaler Barock Ensemble, Leipzig; Almaviva/The Barber of Seville for OperaUpClose and Pane/Natura for Opera national du rhin with Les Talens Lyriques conducted by Christophe Rousset.

Lawrence was a finalist in the 2012 Les Azuriales Young Artist Competition, Nice under the tutelage of Michele Crider and Peter Coleman Wright and has appeared live on BBC 3 In Tune with Sean Rafferty on several occasions with Mercurius Company and the Rameau Ensemble.

As a Theology graduate from Bristol University, Lawrence has a keen interest in Oratorio, regularly performing core sacred works with Dei Gratia Ensemble.
