Vocalists — Baritone

"The evening got a terrific lift from baritone Elliot Madore, whose honeyed timbre and delectable, spontaneous phrasing made every word register. His colorful singing would alone make a great reason to catch the remaining performances Friday and Saturday. On Thursday, Madore reached quite a peak of tonal sexiness in 'Omnia sol temperat' and 'Dies, nox et omnia'; he proved equally effective articulating the ramblings of a drunken cleric in 'Ego sum abbas." —Tim Smith, Baltimore Sun, September 30, 2016 - 'Carmina burana' with Baltimore Symphony and Marin Alsop

“His Mercutio further demonstrates the versatility and deep talent of this rising opera star.” —OperaWarhorses, July 29, 2016 - Mercutio in 'Roméo et Juliette' at Santa Fe Opera

“Elliot Madore as Pelléas not only has movie star quality, but lets his virile sound shine…Madore takes his high notes deliberately into the drama and makes it clear that this is a Pelléas of substance.” —Markus Thiel, Merkur, July 1, 2015 - Pelléas in 'Pelléas et Melisande' at Bayerische Staatsoper

“The confrontation with the stone guest also put the cap on a splendidly credible performance of the title role by the Canadian baritone Elliot Madore, who looks the part, magnificently so in his final defiance, and who sang throughout with considerable style and nuance.' —Martin Kettle, The Guardian, June 8, 2014 - Title role in 'Don Giovanni' at Glyndebourne

“Mr. Madore underplayed the darker moments of both cycles in masterly fashion. In the first song of the Mahler, “Wenn mein Schatz Hochzeit Macht,” the pain of the line “Weep, weep for my darling, for my dear darling,” was all the more intense for the reserve with which he handled both repetitions… he sang with exciting confidence and detail, delivering Poulenc’s elegantly bleak “Sanglots” with subtlety and concentration. He lingered for the slightest extra moment on the vowel in the last word of the Mahler cycle — “Traum” (“Dream”) — capturing in an instant the song’s melancholy beauty and showing the instincts and training of an exceptional recitalist…the evening was Mr. Madore’s.” —Zachary Woolfe, New York Times, January 17, 2012 - Carnegie Hall recital debut with the Marilyn Horne Foundation


A winner of the Metropolitan Opera National Council Auditions, Canadian baritone Elliot Madore is already gaining international attention for his exceptional voice and artistry.

This season, he returns to the Metropolitan Opera as Mercutio in the new production of Roméo et Juliette conducted by Gianandrea Noseda. He will also sing Pelléas in Pelléas et Melisande with Franz Welser-Möst and the Cleveland Orchestra in a fully-staged production by Yuval Sharon, as well as at Opéra-Théâtre de Limoges and with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra under Charles Dutoit.
