Philippe Sly

— Bass-Baritone

“Philippe Sly's elegant bass-baritone made for an attractive Claudio...”
Mark Pullinger, BachTrack, July 24, 2016 - Claudio in 'Béatrcie et Bénédict' at Glyndebourne Festival

“Bass-baritone Philippe Sly, who trounced the 2012 Montreal International Music Competition, was effortlessly captivating here as well. He sang Golaud with honey and tears.”
Lev Bratishenko, Montreal Gazette, September 9, 2015 - Golaud in 'Pelléas et Melisande' with Montreal Symphony Orchestra

“Philippe Sly impressed with his presence and vocal beauty.”
Philippe Venturini, Les Echos, February 24, 2015 - 'Au Monde' at Opéra Comique de Paris

“Philippe Sly, a Canadian bass-baritone who is only in his mid-twenties, played Guglielmo with vocal tone of extraordinary beauty and a wickedly ironic stage presence. We will surely be seeing much more of him; he made his San Francisco Opera debut in the same role just last season, when he was still an Adler Fellow.”
Simon Williams, Opera News, May 2014 - Guglielmo in 'Cosi fan tutte' with the LA Philharmonic


French-Canadian bass-baritone Philippe Sly is already gaining international notoriety for his “beautiful, blooming tone and magnetic stage presence” (San Francisco Chronicle).
