Biographical details

Michael Halliwell studied music and literature at the University of the Witwatersrand in Johannesburg. He was awarded two scholarships to study at the London Opera Centre and with Otakar Kraus, as well as with Tito Gobbi in Florence. He was principal baritone for many years with the Netherlands Opera, the Nürnberg Municipal Opera and the Hamburg State Opera; and he sang in many European cities including London, Munich, Berlin, Frankfurt, Brussels, Paris and Moscow. He took part in several world premieres and appeared frequently at major European festivals in opera, oratorio and song recitals. He has sung over fifty major operatic roles, including Don Giovanni, Papageno, Count Almaviva, Gugliemo, Posa, Germont, Gianni Schicci, Ford and Escamillo.

Michael has given papers on music and literature at many international conferences and has published widely in the field. He organised the Third International Conference on Word and Music Studies at Sydney University in July 2001. He gave a series of lectures on Shakespeare and opera at Cambridge University in 2005, as well as lectures at the Royal College of Music in London on operatic adaptation. He is vice president and a member of the editorial board of The International Association for Word and Music Studies (WMA). His book, Opera and the Novel: The Case of Henry James, was published by Rodopi Press (Amsterdam/New York) in 2005.

Michael has presented masterclasses in Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, Hong Kong, Taipei and Cape Town. He performs regularly in Australia and abroad and has recorded many programs for ABC Classic FM and 2MBS FM. A double CD of settings of Kipling ballads and Boer War songs, When the Empire Calls, was released by ABC Classics in 2005, with a CD of Australian Shakespeare settings, O for a Muse of fire, released at the end of 2012. He performed the world premieres of Lawrence Kramer’s song cycles, Five Songs and an Epilogue, from The Wings of the Dove, in Edinburgh in August 2007, Nine Songs to Ezra Pound in Vienna in June 2009 and Crossing the Water in Santa Fe in August 2011.

Michael’s practical teaching has been informed by his own continuing performance and many years experience of working with and observing the best singers and pedagogues in Europe, North America and Australia. He believes in developing the complete performer, grounded in a secure technique but also characterised by an inquiring intelligence. He strives to develop the musicality of young performers so that technique and musicality are acquired simultaneously. He believes in inculcating a strong sense of discipline and commitment to the art form from the outset.
