Tenor Stephen Cviic is a versatile and accomplished performer across the whole spectrum of classical singing: oratorio, opera, recital and chorus. His voice is known for its clarity, power and flexibility, equally at home in rapid coloratura and in heavier repertoire, and he has a charismatic stage presence, particularly enjoying any opportunity to bring sparkle, wit and comedy into performance.
Born in London to a Croatian father and an English mother, he cut his musical teeth as a boy treble and as a flautist in Stoneleigh Youth Orchestra. After an English degree and a career in journalism, he resumed singing as a tenor, studying with John Upperton and spending two years on the Morley College Opera Performance Course.
His operatic roles include Pong (Turandot), Joe (Fanciulla del West), Gherardo (Gianni Schicchi), Roderigo (Otello), Grimoaldo (Rodelinda), Emilio (Partenope), Arbace (Idomeneo), Aeneas (Dido and Aeneas), Frederic (Pirates of Penzance), Ralph Rackstraw (HMS Pinafore) and Remendado (Carmen).
As an oratorio soloist, he has performed Mozart's Requiem, JS Bach and CPE Bach Magnificats, Bach Christmas Oratorio, and Tippett Seven Negro Spirituals. In 2012, he and his sister Antonia Cviic (soprano) launched a song recital partnership.
Stephen is a member of the Philharmonia Chorus Professional Singers' Scheme, sings regularly at St Nicholas Church, Chiswick, and with the Elysian Singers, appearing with them on well-reviewed CDs. He has worked with conductors including Sam Laughton, Jeremy Summerly, Esa-Pekka Salonen and Daniele Gatti and performed at London venues such as the Royal Festival Hall, the Albert Hall, St Martin-in-the-Fields, St John's Smith Square, and in places as far afield as Prague and Malta.
Stephen has other musical interests, including Brazilian popular music (having spent three years in Brazil as a journalist), and is a devotee of the musicals of Stephen Sondheim, feeling that opera sometimes needs an injection of Sondheim's pace and wit.
He is a talented linguist, fluent in Spanish and Portuguese, and is now exploiting his family connections with south-eastern Europe by learning Croatian. When not singing, he works as a translator and has written a novel set in Brazil - with a musical theme.
