Russell Braun


Renowned for his luminous voice “capable of the most powerful explosions as well as the gentlest covered notes” (Toronto Star) baritone Russell Braun rightfully claims his place on the concert, opera and recital stages of the world. His intelligent and thoughtful portrayals of Chou En-lai, Billy Budd, Prince Andrei, Figaro, Papageno, Count Almaviva, Don Giovanni, Pelléas, Eugene Onegin, and The Traveller have captivated audiences. Highlights of the 2020/21 season include his return to The Metropolitan Opera as Marcello La Boheme and, on the concert platform, Britten’s War Requiem with the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich. Russell is married to pianist Carolyn Maule.
